The software company will host an event called "Mesh It
Up" at the Web 2.0 conference, and an executive will address the
initiative in a keynote.
Microsoft is expected to launch its Live Mesh synchronization solution at
the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco
the week of April 21.
The software giant invited a host of people to an event called "Mesh It
Up," scheduled for April 24 during the event. The invitation was issued
under the "Live Mesh" banner.
In addition, Amit Mital, general manager of Live Mesh for Microsoft,
will be giving a keynote titled "Get Mesh!" at the show the day
Microsoft MIX conference in Las Vegas
last month, Microsoft Chief Software
Architect Ray Ozzie spoke of a world where all devices would be connected
via a "mesh."
Meanwhile, at least one
observer has reported
that Microsoft is expected to deliver the first beta
of Live Mesh later in April.
Joe Wilcox speaks out on Ozzie's "mesh mashup." Read his blog here.
At MIX, Ozzie said developers and designers need "to think of the Web
as a hub-the hub of our social experiences, our social mesh, the hub of our
technology experiences, our device mesh. Related to the social mesh, we believe
that the interpersonal nature of the Web will ultimately impact everything we
do, including the personal aspect of the PC, in scenarios ranging from
productivity to media and entertainment. All applications-ours and yours-and
will incorporate the group-forming aspect of the Web. Linking, sharing,
ranking, tagging on the Web will become as familiar to all of us as file, edit
and view on the PC."
