The keynote at MIX08 in Las Vegas this year was really exciting to follow. I was really looking forward to the keynote mainly for Scott Guthrie’s announcements, and was not let down.

Check Tim Sneath’s blog to get a “live” overview of what was announced during the keynote. Tim does a great job at keeping you informed on the whole keynote.

Enjoy!
