TechEd Orlando is coming up in a little over a week (June 6th thru 10th)! There's already a wait list of people who want to go because TechEd brings in a big audience who are engaged in all sorts of different parts of Microsoft's business. If you're one of the lucky people already registered, you have the change to play a game we're hosting to enable people to interact with mobile devices, meet peers and have fun. We're calling it "Mobilizer Madness" and it's developed by The Go Game out of San Francisco. Here's the information about it :
Mobilizer Madness is coming to TechEd 2005! Gather up a resourceful team and play the hour-long technology-fueled scavenger hunt throughout the Orange County Convention Center. Teams of up to 8 players will download clues on the brand new VX6600 Verizon Windows Mobile based Smartphone. There will be cool prizes for the winning teams.
Missions will involve your wits, your guts and your creative grey matter. Some will involve interfacing with actors who are 'in' on the game, others center around TechEd content and your far-reaching knowledge of all things Windows Mobile. Some will even require you to stage creative photos in response to open-ended missions. The creative photo submissions will be judged by your peers during the game, and points awarded accordingly.
Informational sessions are taking place in the meal hall at 8:00AM on June 6-8. The Game will begin in the meal hall each of the following days:
