A couple of weeks ago Engadget interviewed Bill Gates, today Joystiq interview Steve Ballmer about the XBOX 360. I stayed up late last night helping the guys transcribe the tape. Steve Ballmer is still the loud, laughing maniac I remember interviewing for Silicon Alley Reporter/Digital Coast Reporter back in 99and he is still sharp as a samurai sword. He goes from screaming in excitement to introspective in 7 seconds. I’d love to see him and Jeff Bezos watch Chappelle Show sometimethese guys are both huge laughers.
Great interview I wish you could hear the tape (not sure if there is a podcast of this one happening there should be!). Everyone in the room was laughing so hard at one point it sounds like a drunken frat party.
