Got a long memory? Long enough to remember Xbox's "Live Anywhere" concept? Then you may be shocked to find Microsoft are still hiring people to go implement it.


A Microsoft job posting, noticed by Ars Technica, is looking for a "LIVE Community Director", who would be asked to...

...manage [Microsoft's] LIVE community strategy and execution across a range of properties, from Xbox LIVE to Windows Mobile. This senior position will play a vital role in the community space as the LIVE Engagement team builds and program's Microsoft's next-generation, LIVE-enabled casual and social gaming platform across the Web, the console, mobile and beyond.

Live Anywhere always sounded like a bit of a pipe dream back when it was first announced. But now, in 2009, the technology actually exists to get the thing up and running, especially Microsoft now have a HD Zune. Be interesting to see what they can come up with in the coming months.

Or, seeing as it's Live Anywhere we're talking about, the coming years.
