The annual MSR TechFest

New ways to organize information, protect your computer, and improve electronic and visual communication were among the highlights of projects shown at Microsoft's annual TechFest last week in Redmond, Washington.

TechFest is Microsoft Research's yearly gathering of its researchers from around the world. This event gives the researchers a chance to show their work to the various product teams at Microsoft, and as such, it's an indication of work that may someday move beyond the research stage and into the hands of businesses and consumers.
I've collected a bunch of links through RSS feeds that highlight just some of the projects that were showcased at this year's TechFest.

Just skim through all of them if you're interested. They're not very long, and they're definitely very cool. :)
