It was a Microsoft manager explaining how the first project got open source, got a lot of traction and benefits, and then the other teams saw and jumped a board ASAP ...

It was probably a Scott Hanselman talk if I had to guess. I believe ASP.NET was the first part of the stack to go open source.

Would be interesting to hear if this is one of the reasons that ASP.NET Core has turned out as good as it has.
