I only interviewed him one time when we were a co-sponsor of WinHEC. He rocked in his chair the whole time with Carl Stork sitting nearby. I asked a bunch of questions he pretty much dismissed or answered by pouring out a gallon of meaningless techno-speak. I figured it must be a polite technique or habit he developed from a bazillion boring interviews. Somewhere in there I got some flake of a scoop about WinPad (big deal it never shipped!)
