For my tech friends and my friends on campus . . .
MSN and Microsoft Research have launched a joint venture called Live Labs. The purpose of the venture is to create new Internet research opportunities and new academic funding Internet research. A companion organization, called Search Labs, will be creating innovative products from prototypes developed at Live Labs. The project is located in Silicon Valley, and they’re hiring.
The information goes deep and wide below the Live Labs announcement post if you’re interested in finding out more about it.
The project sounds more than interesting, particularly the part about academic funding.
It never hurts to know what MSN and Microsoft are up to.
