We have a cunning stunt being undertaken by alternative Aussie Rockers Regurgitator.
They are locking themselves in a bubble for 3 weeks to write and produce a complete album.
This is a true multimedia marketing event with TV, SMS, MMS, Webcams, and other interactive components all combining for a total marketing blitz. There is even a Halo2 tie-in!
Now, all this is cool. Personally, I like the band and their music, so I will be having a peak into the bubble.
What is even cooler, the website http://www.bandinabubble.com/ is powered by ASP.NET
Gotta love that!!!
Another Aussie .NET Development blogger comes out of the closet - Welcome Angus Logan, a Brisbane boy who is blogging on The Spoke. This brings the list to 49!! Just like the number of medals Australia won in the Olympics
Angus also alerted me to a mistake in the blogger OPML file. Problem fixed. Thanks to the other folks who also mentioned this to me!
Two more bloggers have been added to our list of Aussie .NET Developer bloggers - Shaji Sethu & David Kean
I am keeping all these aussie .net developers bloggers in a OPML which can be used with your own rss reader, or feed into feedster.
Launching later this week - an email will be sent to all members!!!
it will be terrific.
I spent most of Tuesday in the Exhibition Hall at the ANZ Partner Conference. I was very fortunate to have The Hardman visit in the booth with us.
We kept busy talking to customers, doing demos of Visual Studio 2005, showing the Aussie Maps from Mappoint, swapping stories and generally have a good time hanging out with our partners.
Wednesday I do my presentation - wish me luck!
I'm up in Coolum this week for the ANZ Partner Conference.
I am working in the Exhibition pavilion this afternoon, and the whole area has a wireless hotspot. It's pretty cool sitting up here on the Sunshine Coast connected to the net. It's like one of those TV commercials that has been running during the olympics - people online while on a golf course.
We announced the availability of Australian Maps from the MapPoint Web Service at TechEd 2004.
During the past week, the datasource has been "released to the web". If you are using the web service, you can access Aussie maps by setting the datasource to "Mappoint.AP".
I'll be speaking about the MapPoint Web Service at the upcoming ANZ Partner Conference later this week.
Woohoo! Bring on the apps!!
