Charles Simonyi, Microsoft Former Chief Architect, Spaceman, Sees the Future of Software Development

Yesterday at the Technology Review’s annual summit on the MIT campus, Charles Simonyi, former chief architect Microsoft where, he lead the creation of Excel and Word, made the keynote speech.

He outlined a new approach to creating software, which is the business of his company Intentional Software. The system integrates “domain experts” with software developers. Here’s a report on ZDNet and another on CNET.

Charles Simonyi has accumulated quite a bit of wealth, Forbes put his net worth at $1 billion. He is one of the first space tourists, having paid $20 million for a two week trip on the International Space Station. His pal Martha Stewart accompanied him to Russia where she cooked a dinner to bring up in space for Charles and those lucky cosmonauts!

Doing the interview for Beet.TV here is Jason Pontin, editor and chief and publisher of Technology Review.

Speaking of Excel, it’s been in the news over the last couple of days with the discovery of a multiplication error. We did not ask Charles about his thoughts about it. Darn!

Great Times at MIT!

Hangin’ with Jason and Jai Singh (c), Editor-in-Chief of CNET’s Jai was Jason’s first boss way back in the InfoWorld days. Jai flew in from San Francisco for the conference.

Much more video to come: Great interviews with Kevin Rose, “our man in Paris” Tariq Krim of Netvibes and we “StumpledUpon” Garrett Camp! (The threesome above.) And others. Also, we swung by Forrester Research in Cambridge for the scoop on the HD formats war, the future of PC’s and more. Stay tuned to the purple channel!
