051 – Viral Tarpara on Collaboration, SharePoint, Open Source (Port 25) and Community

Ninth the in the Twelve Podcasts of Christmas 2008!

Heroes Happen Here

In March 2008, Microsoft’s “2008” wave of product launches took place in Birmingham. It was a great opportunity to grab some podcasts with Microsoft Executives and many of their DPEs. In this podcast, co-hosted by Andy Westgarth, we’re chatting to Microsoft Collaboration Evangelist Viral Tarpara. Viral is open and honest, giving us an insight into what he does for Microsoft and the importance of Community within a large corporation. Watch out for Viral’s “good save” when making reference to major search engines near the end of this recording!

Photos of the event can be found here.

“Identity management is important. As soon as folks know what you look like, every Santa and his elf want to podcast with you!”

Heroes Happen Here

Earlier this year, 2008, Birmingham was host to the Microsoft Heroes Happen Here product launch. VBUG’s Andrew Westgarth and myself were allowed to roam around recording interviews with many of the Microsoft Executives and Microsoft evangelists!

In this podcast, we’re sitting on a comfortable sofa with Microsoft’s Stephen Lamb. Recorded in March 2008, it is before Stephen switched to his PR role, so the topic is security. However, HHH was a community event too, so we chat about community for a bit too.

I do have a more recent podcast with Stephen, recorded early December 2008. It covers Stephen’s new PR role and will be released as part of the Twelve Podcasts of Christmas!
