Ray Ozzie has launched a new lab focused on social computing “The 82-person Future Social Experiences Labs (FUSE) will be headed by General Manager Lili Cheng. FUSE is an amalgamation of Cheng’s Microsoft Research (MSR) Creative Systems group and two other labs that are already under Ozzie.” “FUSE Labs’ team will explore new social, real-time and media-rich applications and services that add value to existing products, or could be released on their own.  By combining these teams under a single leader and mission, Ray believes FUSE Labs can achieve greater impact through tighter focus and a more holistic approach.”
