CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The media-rich environment of the Web, along with desktop applications, will evolve to an even richer experience with HD video embedded into applications and content displayed in 3D, says Craig Mundie in this interview with Beet.TV.  Mundie is Microsoft’s Chief Research and Strategy Officer. 

I spoke with him on Thursday at MIT at the Technology Review EmTech 08
conference after his keynote address.  Dan Farber at CNET reported on the speech and Mundie’s explanation of the 3D environment.  More reporting on the speech by Ian Lamont of the Industry Standard.

In our interview, he speaks about the evolution of rich computing, technology
leadership at Microsoft and how the company is aiding computing  in emerging economies.  This is the first of a three-part series.
