I wasn’t going to write anything about the new Microsoft commercials, which I really like, despite the fact that I wrote about the two Seinfeld/Gates commercials.
But then I realized that the PC Guy in the commercials is Sean Siler. He’s a real tech guy who actually works at Microsoft for a living – as opposed to being a professional actor. Here’s his TechNet blog.
In fact, Sean epitomizes the “I’m a PC” message. We interviewed him not too long ago for RunAs Radio on the topic of IPv6 (he’s the program manager for IPv6 at Microsoft). I thought you might be interested in hearing what Sean had to say at that time. He’s wicked smart and a fun conversation.
It sounds like it’s been an interesting evening for Sean, but he took the time to exchange a couple emails with me, which was cool of him. Congrats to Sean, and to Microsoft. Good start!
So, here you go – Our interview with Sean from a few months ago:
RunAs Radio #53: Sean Siler Sets Us Straight on IPv6!
And here are the three new commercials. Personally, I like ’em.

Oh and if you send an email to Sean’s address as listed in the three videos, you’ll get a reply. I’d post it here, but it’ll be more fun if you do it yourself. 🙂
