Released alongside Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft PressPass has posted an interview with Martin Taylor, Corporate VP of Windows Live and MSN. Here's a little snippit:
Taylor: We're committed to delivering a set of services that puts all users firmly in control of their individual experiences on the Web and enables them to more easily stay connected, informed and protected. Our customers tell us that the Internet is so empowering to them – it makes them feel smarter and helps them relate to people and information in rich ways – but also that the Web is more complicated than it needs to be. By building these services on top of an existing social network that spans more than 12 billion relationships in our contacts store, we're also enabling totally new forms of connection and social networking for consumers.
It's pretty long, but definitely a very interesting read. Martin Taylor Q&A
