    Ed Wilson: 2010 Scripting Games Kick-Off

    • 0 Comments
    Like a football team that sweats all summer preparing for opening day, so the Scripting Guys organize the 2010 Scripting Games . Just as a football team is more than just players on the field, so too the Scripting Guys involved nearly 100 people in bringing together the event.

    Just a few extracurricular shots from NYC

    Some of the Microsoft Press team was in New York this week for O’Reilly’s Tools of Change publishing conference, where it was fantastic to meet many of our O’Reilly cohorts. Tuesday night we went out to hear Christian McBride’s big band. Nobody took a photo of that great band, who were having an obvious blast on the stand, but we did get these. The exterior of the place (at Columbus Circle) the next day: Our crew: And the band, also wonderful, that followed Christian’s for the late-night show, playing almost exclusively music by Donald Byrd (but for Ellington’s “Sophisticated Lady”):
