RIA Weekly #10 – SXSW Wrap-up, Knocking Out Google's Lights, Micro-ISVs

At the tail-end of SXSWi in Austin, Ryan Stewart and I wrap-up what we've seen and done at SXSW, more or less relevant to RIA land. As we note, the main thing at SXSW is hanging out with people during the day and late into the night. Indeed, I didn't even manage to go to any sessions.

We also talk about the theory that Microsoft could use Silverlight to make parts of the web "go dark" for Google (thus, harming Google's revenues). We then get into a discussion of people making money selling RIA applications, sort of micro-ISVs if you know that term. Finally, we end up with tips and tricks for SXSW, imploring all of you, dear listeners and watchers, to come next year.

Also, we spend some time talking about the character of the folks at SXSW: in summary, they're ready to get down to business, no need for the beginner level stuff, which explains some of the crowd rebellion people saw this year.
