Windows Live 试图构建 Flickr 竞争者

感谢 Long Zheng 的消息:在昨天的一份微软项目经理职位广告中,透露了一些微软试图开发下一代照片和视频共享网站战略:

Come make Windows Live the best place to share your digital memories! Heard of Flickr? YouTube? How about. Mac? This role will work across the new Windows Live division with teams like Spaces, SkyDrive, Messenger and Hotmail to construct a winning strategy for Microsoft in photo and video sharing. This role involves leading the team to design the strategy then build and implement a winning solution that will be loved by millions of customers. This feature team is building a next-generation photo and video sharing service that will compete with flickr, smugmug and other photo web solutions today. This is a “v1” opportunity.

该职位将会跨多个Windows Live 产品团队 – Windows Live Spaces , Windows Live SkyDrive ,  Windows Live Messenger 和 Windows Live Hotmail 等来构建一个图片和视频共享平台,主要是与 Flickr , Smugmug 和其他照片共享站点竞争。

下面两段介绍了该职位的要求和 Digital Memories Experience 团队的概况:

This role requires a strong PM with several product cycles of consumer experience. Successful candidates will have strong strategic thinking, outstanding cross team leadership and a proven track record of shipping. The right candidate for this position has an entrepreneurial streak – and functions well as part of a team. The ideal candidate has experience shipping consumer web solutions.

The Digital Memories Experience team (DMX) is helping people make deeper connections with those they care about. We want to give you the ability to effortlessly share your memories, be that a simple slideshow of photos and videos (e.g. evolution of the Vista Slideshow or of Photo Story), a carefully authored experienced (evolution of Movie Maker), or a fully interactive cinematic multimedia experience (a narrated 3D path through a Photosynth that you can control). And we want to make it easy and fun to enjoy your photos and videos, whether that is on the PC in your office, the Media Center in your living room, the XBox in your entertainment center, or on your mobile device when you are out and about. DMX is a part of the Windows Live Experience division (WLX/LEX), which also includes Mail, Hotmail, Messenger, SkyDrive, Spaces, Writer, Calendar, and Family Safety. To achieve our vision for digital memories we work with many other teams including: Core User Experience, Find & Organize, Graphics (Windows Imaging Codecs – WIC – and DirectX) in WEX, MCE, Expression, SmartFlow, and Xbox.

Windows Live Photo Gallery 已经支持了上传照片至 Flickr,就这一点来说是值得很多公司学习的,能够在即将竞争的状态下,在自己的产品中加入对竞争对手服务的支持。希望新的服务不只是 MSN Soapbox 的扩展,而是一款真正能和 Flickr 等竞争的服务。

    @mliujun: 你是03年左右的时候利用过微软的漏洞成为了Premium用户了吧?gxgx,其实你也可以借助你现有的号让你的@live/@msn变成收费子帐户的。
