Here’s the second of two interviews with Microsoft’s Brian Goldfarb, who heads product development for Silverlight.

Beet.TV was in Redmond last week for a series of interviews about the Silverlight launch and its implications. 

Brian outlines the two fundamental implementations of Silverlight: as a media platform for streaming video — and as a rich, interactive application market.

Brian explains that live streaming is a "growing phenomenon" and that Silverlight provides live streaming, along with interactivity layered onto that live stream.   

We think that live streaming will really take off.  We’ve heard this over and over in interviews with Adobe, Akamai and Justin.TV.  It’s going to be a big fundamental development in the months ahead.
