Angus Davis Video on TechNetCast!

Tuesday September 29th, 1998

Jason Kersey, regular contributor to mozillaZine, writes in with this really interesting news, that you should all check out. Jason writes, "Angus Davis has an interview at http://www.technetcast.com".

This is a very informative presentation, so please check it out if you have the time. BTW, Angus Davis is the Product Manager for NGLayout, the Next Generation layout engine.

Note: Very cool! I'm watching the presentation as I'm typing this, and Angus is demonstrating transclusion, or XML linking, which allows linked in content! WooHoo!

Note 2: He mentioned me in his presentation! I'm gonna faint! :)

How old is that kid? About 14? He said the work "um" and "uh" more than anyone else I've ever seen in my life. I must say after seeing him speak, no wonder Netscape is loosing market share!

I'm sure Angus very much appreciates your comments about his youthful looks, but you obviously didn't watch much more than the first part of the presentation, because after the minute, he doesn't um or ah hardly at all. It's an exciting presentation about all the cool stuff that's coming post-HTML

I think Angus did very well, and managed to get through any rough spots he encountered with aplomb. I didn't really notice the shakiness at the start. What I liked was that there was very little equivocation on his part, even though he had to walk a thin line about his statements regarding Communicator 5.0. No official press releases have been given by Netscape yet, so he couldn't really say what would or wouldn't show up in the next version. But he hammered the point home that they are working hard and fast towards full standards compliance.

If anyone has any questions about the preso, feel free to email me. One of the funnier aspects of the conference was that my counterpart from Microsoft was supposed to speak the previous day about IE5, but didn't show up. Greg, does that impact market share? :-)
