Cambridge Consultants and Microsoft Research Labs

I've been away the past couple of weeks in the UK. Much of my time was taken up with the "Traveling Geeks" a collection of journalists and bloggers from the Silicon Valley area.

I will share some of my adventures over the next few days.

Here is a video of a visit to Cambridge Consultants, a Cambridge based organization that helps startups get their products to market. And also a visit to Microsoft Research Labs and the Cambridge Computer Laboratory.

We met with Cambridge university lecturer and successful entrepreneur Jack Lang, also Ken Wood, deputy director of MRL, Tim Regan, Research SDE at MRL, and presentations from their colleagues. Also, we were shown some of the applications the researchers are developing.
