    Streaming to your hearts content!

    • 0 Comments
    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...

    [Heart] Longhorn

    • 1 Comments
    We're all here, packed into the UX Lounge - somewhere off the main concourse to the big keynote hall. We've got a big sign that says "Client" - just assume that means "Aero" and come on down! I should be around the rest of the day, wearing a Longhorn...

    Birds of a Feather: Blogging

    • 2 Comments
    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...

    And the PDC... is over. Kinda.

    • 5 Comments
    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...

    There's always a catch...

    • 2 Comments
    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...

    First celeb sighting...

    • 0 Comments
    While we were out with developers for drinks, we ran into Pat Morita , aka Mr. Miyagi . Not sure why I thought that was worth mentioning, but I'm taking it as a sign we're going to have a good week.

    Exhaustion

    • 0 Comments
    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...

    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...
