Today was the financial analysis’s day at Microsoft in the main conference center (building 33). I saw them prepping for it when I was up in Redmond yesterday. One of the sessions was Winning in Internet Services, where MSN presented to analysis what we’ve been up to and what we’re working on. As the article from Microsoft Watch indicates, there’s a lot going on from Virutal Earth, to MSN Messenger 7.5 to MSN Search and the work we’re doing in web mail. As you can tell, we’re up to a lot and there’s a lot more to come, like the friends of friends system the article mentions.
Also, for a great discussion on MSN, check out Paul Thurrott’s showcase on MSN, which talks about some of our back end systems, like our Addressbook Clearing House and gives a good history of the division.
