Full D8 Video: Microsoft's Steve Ballmer and Ray Ozzie

As promised, All Things Digital is posting the full videos from our eighth D: All Things Digital conference, held earlier this month.

Let’s start off this week with a bang–in the person of the always lively Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer, who appeared onstage at D8 with the tech giant’s chief software architect, Ray Ozzie.

And, indeed, the ebullient Ballmer did not disappoint, talking about Google (GOOG), Apple (AAPL) and Yahoo (YHOO), as well as the challenges Microsoft faces in morphing itself to cope with the massive changes across the digital landscape over the last several years.

Judge for yourself how well he and Ozzie did.

Here’s the full video of the session, in which Walt Mossberg interviewed the pair:

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
