On the way to Autodesk University 2007, during my S.F. stopover, I had the pleasure of catching up with Michael Scherotter over coffee. I first got to know Michael when he was with Mindjet and visited him there after AU2005. Last year he moved to a new role with Microsoft which seems a perfect fit.
After studying Architecture, as in buildings not software, Michael found his real love was developing software solutions for new uses/niches. If you asked me to cite one characteristic that defines Michael it’s his passion for new technology and sharing that knowledge.
That is apparent in this clip where he talks about Microsoft Silverlight 2.0 and how it’s soon to be used in major media projects.
