  • Blog Post: Streaming to your hearts content!

    This is cool - streaming audio and slides (and video from demos) is up for anyone to peruse. It's weird hearing my voice, of course (and a bit humbling), but it is pretty cool to be able to basically review any of the PDC sessions. You can check it out here . It takes some time to load a session...
  • Blog Post: And the PDC... is over. Kinda.

    So, it's been lights out here for the last week - the PDC hit us hard - from meeting with tons of people, to doing talks and demos, to just trying to find a restaurant, it was a whirlwind of... well, something. Basically, so much happened and there are so many stories to tell I simply don't know where...
  • Blog Post: Something funny

    I'm blogging from the Birds of a Feather blogging discussion. I just wanted to say that.
  • Blog Post: Birds of a Feather: Blogging

    I think tonight I'll be going to the Birds of a Feather session, Weblogging: The Future of Conversational Software . Not sure what it holds in store, but it looks interesting. If you are blogging the PDC, it's worth attending, I'm sure. Other random tidbits: Network access got way better later...
  • Blog Post: Exhaustion

    We just made it through BillG's keynote and things seem to have come off smoothly. The team is pretty exhausted - including myself. I'm actually back at the hotel, reading some blogs about what we just showed - we'll see what people have to say by the end of the day! Early comments (such as from...
  • Blog Post: There's always a catch...

    Of course, there's always a catch. Apparently, the pretty horrendous fires happening near Los Angeles have caused visibility to basically be zero for the local airports - making it dangerous for planes to land safely. I'm sure the attendees on their way or currently on the way are a bit upset...
  • Blog Post: Oh yeah...

    Since I was able to post, it should be clear I made it to LA. Already got some dinner planned, then meeting some developers later for drinks (let me know if you're interested!). Supposedly we're even gonna go start setting up tonight - at the very least, spending all day tomorrow on it. Oh boy...
  • Blog Post: Rambling at 30,000+ Feet

    I’m writing this entry some 30,000 feet above sea level, having just crossed the border into California . In a little while (well, somewhere around an hour and a half) we’ll descend into the Los Angeles area, where the pilot tells me I can expect 90 degree weather.   ...
  • Blog Post: Let's get this party started

    Well, it’s just about time to head to Los Angeles . I’m flying out tomorrow, spending Sunday setting up, and getting excited to meet each and every one of you. Once that happens, the information flow will go from slow, slow trickle to incredibly fast, rushing river.   My primary...
  • Blog Post: Visions of PDC danced in their head...

    Jeremy recently blogged about a discussion we've had that relates to Longhorn, the new storage system, and what my team has been up to. Of course, since he's so willing to rip me off, feel free to go read his post , then come back and report here and we'll just steal all his comments...
  • Blog Post: Hype and Hope - the PDC!

    PDC preparation continues to move into high gear, and the excitement is building. The hype machine, of course, cannot help but go into overdrive – people are simply so jazzed about this show (internally and externally) that it’s good we’re going to get it done and over with soon. I’ve never seen...
  • Blog Post: Random morsels

    I'm such a slacker. I haven't posted in days! I actually was writing up a post about video games and user experience, but I failed to post it because of the overall level of pretentiousness. If I can clean that up to make an actual point I may post it soon. Paolo Marcucci's session browser...
  • Blog Post: PDC & Intrigue!

    Alright, looks like I'm finally set for a hotel. I have one booked, and I'm working on actually setting something else up that would be cheaper for Microsoft and closer to the convention center - but at the very least, I have a place to sleep! It's an unbelievably good stress relief (sleeping in doorways...
  • Blog Post: PDC Tidbits

    Paolo Marcucci has made great progress on his PocketPC PDC app . I'm quite excited about it, despite not having a PocketPC... I'm hoping if I link him enough, I'll get one. I mean, wouldn't you want that kind of endorsement? I'll be sending Paolo some thoughts on what I'd like to see here, feel free...
  • Blog Post: PDC Travel

    I'm all set for the PDC - but I don't have a hotel yet! Early last week, all the MS setup places were booked (at least for one night they all were) and I've been working with our travel folk to figure out where I can get a room. I'm there Saturday through Thursday, so it looks like it may even be...
  • Blog Post: PDC in your Pocket

    My friend Paolo Marcucci , of  PicBlog fame, has been working to make sure his PDC experience doesn't suck. In particular, he wants instant access to both the current set of sessions and any further data right on his PocketPC. Beat that! We'll see if he posts some further details on his thinking...
  • Blog Post: More PDC Funtastico

    After my last post, Dominic asked basically, "Well, what talks are you involved in?" The one I'm most involved in is CLI 323 WinFS: Schemas, Extensibility and the Storage User Experience . (That link should work, we'll see). You'll be hearing more about that as we get to the PDC. I'm helping on a...
  • Blog Post: PDC Approaches

    The hype, the fervor, and quite honestly, the exciting deadline that is the PDC is looming over us in Redmond currently. (That, and the fact that it's starting to enter the rainy season). I'm certain from those tracking Microsoft news (and if you aren't, I'm curious as to why this blog is interesting...
