With Macworld 2007 almost upon us, we at MacBU are excited to be participating in this great conference again. In addition to our usual activities (booth presence, presentations, demos, parties, etc), we're doing something new this year to support the Mac blogging community. We are sponsoring the first Blogger Lounge at Macworld, which will be located in Booth 702 of the Exhibit Hall (near our main Microsoft booth). Details can be found here on the Macworld event page.
It will be a casual atmosphere for bloggers, podcasters, and other online community members to hang out, relax, and blog/post about the event without having to search for an Internet Cafe or run back to their hotels. There will be iMacs available, couches, tables, refreshments, and Internet access for those with notebooks.
In addition, many of our Mac Mojo bloggers will be there as well. We've created a mini-schedule in case folks are interested in knowing who will be in the Blogger Lounge at what times:
Tues, Jan. 9
3:00 - 5:00 Erik Schwiebert, Development Lead
Wed, Jan 10
10:00 - 12:00 Andy Ruff, Lead Program Manager
1:00 - 3:00 Rick Schaut, Development Lead
3:00 - 5:00 Nadyne Mielke, User Experience Researcher; Erik Schwiebert, Development Lead
Thurs, Jan 11
10:00 - 12:00 Brian Johnson, Product Manager
1:00 - 3:00 Brad Post, Developer
3:00 - 5:00 Nadyne Mielke, User Experience Researcher
Fri, Jan. 12
10:00 - 12:00 Sheridan Jones, Group Marketing Manager
There will likely be other MacBU folks who swing by when they're not in meetings or working in the other MS booth, but we wanted to make sure there were definite times when our staff (esp. our Mojo bloggers) would be around. Hope to see you there!
