Brian Meyers has worked at Microsoft since 1989. Most of that time was spent working on development of programming languages, tools, and libraries. Since 1997 he has been working in Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington. He is currently working on DrawBridgethe library OS, focusing on the user interfaces for managing processes between machines and the into the cloud.
Before that Brian worked on the "ecosystem" of devices that we all work with everyday as we move from home to cars to work carrying with us smart phones and laptops. How can all these systems work together? What tools can help us organize and share this information between devices. And most importantly - how can we maintain our context as the devices we interact with change.
An example of these types of systems is the Courier Demo (http://research.microsoft.com/apps/video/?id=148114 ).
