* Fantastic Video "Behind the Technology" ala VH1's Behind the Music.  Destined to become a classic.  Hopefully it will get posted soon!  They appear to have gotten the ACTUAL VH1 announcer.  Also, it included Puff Daddy, Anthony Michael Hall, Bill Clinton, Warren Buffet, the Meet the Press guy, the Pets.com puppet, and John Sculley (Apple Newton launcher).
* "Peer to Peer is very important."
* Informtation has been stored in binary streams - in hierarchical silos. "We haven't gone beyond the clipboard to structure information."
* Information Agents - needs to be built into the platform.  "Every application tries to be on top and put up its toast.". (A reference to the "little blue toast" popup that Messenger uses to inform the user of presence chnages.)
* "A 26" LCD will cost only $500 in 3-5 years."
* Longhorn: It's all about Avalon (new GDI), WinFS (Metadata/Unified Storage), Indigo (Communication system)
