Team Xbox Q&A: Katie, who works with Xbox Media

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/wp-content/uploads/Katie_620.jpg

I took some time this week to catch up with Katie, a Program Manager who works with Xbox Media, whose name you might recognize from recent posts about Dolby Vision. Learn more about Katie, her work bringing Dolby Vision to the Xbox One and much more!

Hi, Katie! Really appreciate you chatting with us; it’s awesome to get the chance to introduce you to our Xbox Insiders. Mind sharing what you do at Xbox?

Certainly!  I am a Program Manager on the SiGMA team, working on Xbox Media.  Basically, I help deliver top media experiences on Xbox through new features and external partner support.  Day to day, my role can include working with external partners (like Netflix and YouTube) to best support their apps on our platform, working with internal devs to fix various bugs or issues, or evaluating new features we would like to enable.

You recently worked with Dolby to bring Dolby Vision to consoles for the very first time! Can you tell us a bit about what that work looks like?

Bringing Dolby Vision support to Xbox was a really exciting and challenging project to work on.  When we started looking at this technology, no other game console had implemented Dolby Vision.  We worked extensively with Dolby to architect a solution to support their technology on our platform.  It also required a significant collaboration with Netflix in order to bring this new feature to their application.  This was a huge endeavor, and required very close partnership with all three companies.  It was an amazing experience to lead such a large project, and have a successful feature launch.

OK, I’ve gotta know: What kind of TV do you have, and is it compatible with Dolby Vision?

Ha!  I’m a little embarrassed to say, I don’t own a real TV.  I have a 10 year old computer monitor with a VGA adapter for video, and a hardwired controller plugged into computer speakers for my audio.  I’m fairly low tech at home, and instead spend a lot of time outdoors.  However, I have been eyeing the new LG OLED TVs, and may upgrade later this year.

We’ve worked alongside the Women in Gaming group to feature the women on our team, and one thing I really enjoyed was how we were asked to offer up advice to women now aspiring to work within the gaming industry. Do you have any advice for the women reading our blog on how to get started in gaming or technology?

Great question, I’m really passionate about helping people (especially women) get into the gaming and technology fields.  My biggest piece of advice is to go big – seek out opportunities that scare you.  When I was graduating college, I signed up for an interview with Microsoft in the hopes that I would get a free lunch (there was no way I thought I would actually get an offer).  And a year ago, a dream job opened up on a different team, but were looking for a Senior or Principal Program Manager and I was still very Junior.  However, I went to the hiring manager and told him, “You should hire me for this position.  This is an area I love, and a technology I know.  By the way, my name is Katie.”  A week later I had the job, and have loved it ever since.

I think women especially have a tendency to sell ourselves short.  We are constantly bombarded by the imposter syndrome and the fear of not being good enough.  So my advice is to go big and be bold in spite of these fears.  Search out the areas you are passionate about, and go after opportunities even if you don’t think you may be qualified.

What are you currently playing? Or do you have an all-time favorite game that you don’t think people should miss out on?

I enjoy repeating games and picking up on all of the funny jokes and references I missed the first time through.  Right now I’m replaying Borderlands 2, and I really enjoy Tiny Tina’s explosive character.  She has a quest to collect crumpets, and now whenever I see a crumpet store in Seattle, I think of the game.

In the same vein, what’s the coolest Achievement you’ve unlocked?

In Borderlands 2, there’s an arena called the Circle of Slaughter.  It took my friends and I almost a week to last all 5 rounds and get the achievement for Went Five Rounds.  There was lots of shouting involved as we made it all the way through.

Thanks again for taking the time to speak with us, Katie! Are there any spaces online our readers can reach out and follow along with your work?

I’m not really on social media, but if anyone has follow-up questions, feel free to direct them @xboxinsider on Twitter. Thanks for having me!

Nickelodeon’s Declaration of Kids’ Rights | June 7, 1990

In the course of history, it has become clear that all people are born with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, these rights haven’t always applied to kids.

On Thursday 7th June 1990, as part of the opening of Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, unveiled “Nickelodeon’s Declaration of Kids’ Rights”, a important document, below, inspired by the USA’s Bill of Rights that proclaims to the world that kids have rights, too!:

Nickelodeon’s Declaration of Kids’ Rights

June 7, 1990

In the course of history, it has become pretty clear that all people are born with certain inalienable rights; among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But these rights haven’t always applied to kids.

And that stinks!

Now, 200 years after the creation of America’s Bill of Rights, this declaration proclaims to the world that you have rights too:

You have the right to be seen, heard and respected as a citizen of the world.

You have the right to a world that’s peaceful and an environment that’s not spoiled.

You have the right to be treated with equality; regardless of race, religion, nationality, sex, personality, grades or size.

You have the right to make mistakes without someone making you feel like a jerkhead.

You have the right to be protected from harm, injustice and hatred.

You have the right to an education that prepares you to run the world when it’s your turn.

You have the right to your opinions and feelings, even if others don’t agree with them.

So there!


Nickelodeon’s Declaration of Kids’ Rights transforms America’s traditional Bill of Rights into something potent and meaningful for kids. It uses language that doesn’t patronize kids, but empowers them.

To uphold “Nickelodeon’s Declaration of Kids’ Rights”, Nickelodeon also took the following oath:

We, the People of Nickelodeon,in order to forma more perfect world for kids,promise to:
provide the best in kids’ entertainmentprotect kids’ rights, andpromote the cause of kids everywhere!

‘Serenity’ Trailer: Anne Hathaway Wants Matthew McConaughey to Kill Jason Clarke

serenity trailer new

The sexy thriller Serenity was originally supposed to hit theaters in October – but that didn’t happen, and we all sort of forgot about it. Now it’s back! The flick now opens in January, and there’s a new trailer full of twists, turns, and Matthew McConaughey with his hair slicked back. In this sun-dappled noir, McConaughey is reunited with Interstellar co-star Anne Hathaway, who here plays a bleached-blonde looking to bump off her husband, Jason Clarke. Watch the Serenity trailer below.

Serenity Trailer

Wow, this remake of Joss Whedon’s Serenity sure looks different! I’m kidding, of course. This has nothing to do with the Serenity, the film adaptation of Whedon’s Firefly. Instead, this looks like a throwback to noir films like Double Indemnity and Body Heat. The film hails from Steven Knight, director of the excellent Locke, and writer of Eastern PromisesPeaky Blinders, The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story, a draft of the upcoming World War Z 2, and more.

Knight usually leans more towards writing than directing, but he felt the urge to direct Serenity. “Certain ideas come along and you decide you want to have complete control over it,” he told Variety, “so by directing you don’t have to compromise so much. I don’t love the whole process of directing, as it’s so hard and brutal and physically exhausting, and you’re dealing with all the deadlines and money pressures. But it is strangely addictive.”

McConaughey plays the incredibly named Baker Dill (!!), a “fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.”

This sounds promising, and I love the cast. McConaughey, Hathaway and Clarke are all worth watching, and the film also features Diane Lane, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong. That’s not a cast to ignore, folks. That said, the fact that this was originally set to open this year, and then was unceremoniously bumped to January – which is usually a dumping ground – has me a bit worried. Maybe it’ll turn out okay, though. At the very least, it’ll be fun to hear people say the name “Baker Dill” on the big screen at least once.

Serenity opens January 25, 2019.

Google is patenting a pair of motorized VR roller skates

Do you want to really, physically walk around in virtual reality? Is an omnidirectional treadmill too bulky for your taste? A giant hamster ball too confining? Redirected walking too trippy? An empty warehouse too expensive? If so, I’ve got good news: Google is trying to patent a design for VR roller skates.

Google applied for a patent on some “augmented and/or virtual reality footwear” in May, and the application was published last week. Its “motorized footwear” looks like a pair of skates with treadmills instead of wheels. To use them, you’d put on a VR headset and enter a virtual space. A flexible top platform would let you move your feet normally, going through the motions of walking. Then, the treadmills would negate that motion,…

YouTuber who eats disgusting food is everything good about the internet

A man in a blue checkered shirt sits at a table set with three things: a spoon, a pint of Ample Hills Creamery Peppermint Pattie ice cream, and a hefty burrito. Wordlessly, he tears the heaping burrito in two. He picks up one of the halves — roughly the size of his own fist — rips off a hunk, and dumps it unceremoniously onto the ice cream. He digs his spoon into the ice cream, deposits the creamy glob into his mouth, and chews while staring directly into the camera without blinking. Fin.

The entire video only lasts 27 seconds, but it might still be enough to trigger your gag reflex, depending on your tolerance for heinous toppings. If “burrito on ice cream” isn’t enough to twist your stomach, maybe raw oysters, easy cheese, or mustard…
