In a press announcement yesterday, Microsoft revealed the formation of Live Labs, a partnership between Microsoft Research and MSN "that focuses on applied research for Internet products and services at Microsoft."
What is of great interest to users and the Live community are some of its areas of focus:
– Rapid prototyping
– Development of incubation projects
– Community programs that connect to Live Labs
This is yet another bit of news coming out of Search Champs. Someone seriously needs to rename that event to take account of what it is today (not something just about Search!)
