Ray Ozzie Keynote - 2

The idea behind the concept of connected devices is to create software to provide a personal device mesh using the Internet as a hub. By having a central personal data store, complete with synchronization, the devices will become much more a part of 'you'. A current research team has been working on this starting with the PCs.

A second scenario is connected entertainment devices. The vision includes having DRM be transferable between your own devices. Purchase music and be able to listen to it on your computer, your Zune and your XBox without requiring additional licenses.

Office Live Workspace, opened up to a broad public beta as of yesterday, has a major role in the connectivity picture. You will be able to tag Office documents and make them available to people who are interested in what you have to offer.

You will be able to run Exchange, Sharepoint and Office Communications Server in either the typical, on-premise server or as a hosted service (called Exchange Services, Sharepoint Services, and, well, you get the idea).

He also touched on SQL Server Data Services as a developer database in the cloud. I'll have to check that out.

And  now, on to Scott Guthrie.
