What Is Channel 8?

Microsoft launched a third “Channel” community website, Channel 8, but I have no idea what it is supposed to be about. The site has some blog posts, a way to switch among blog categories, and an “About” page that says nothing more than, “Welcome to Channel 8″. They’re posting a bunch of videos, but I’m really confused about the purpose of the site. Anyone want to try to explain it to me?

It has something to do with academic initiatives and the Imagine Cup, but having a vague and undefinable focus makes it hard to tell people why they should use it. It would be real nice if there was a forum, which would make it a lot easier to see where all this is going. If it really is about student interaction with Microsoft, as an area of interest of mine, I’d be very interested in participating and even generating for the website, but it’s really hard to tell right now.
