  • Blog Post: MIX10 Wrap Up

    Wow! What a week. The MIX10 event is over, and I hope that everyone made it home safely. It was great to meet everyone in-person, and I love that we referred to each other by our Twitter handles (I heard “Hi, Anyware ” many times this week). I thought I’d provide some early data on the event that you...
  • Blog Post: MIX10 Surprise Room Upgrades

    When we host a big event, the destination city usually rolls out the proverbial red carpet because of the additional business we bring to the area. This red carpet treatment often extends to the visitors bureau, the convention center, and the nearby hotels. The deal almost always involves committing...
  • Blog Post: All About MIX10

    Here we are, only three short weeks away from our MIX10 event in Las Vegas. It’s been over 5 months (!) since my last update…the longest dry spell in my 5+ year blogging history. My front page still has old PDC2008 information on it! Anyway, I’m long overdue for a MIX10-related post, and I have a lot...
  • Blog Post: MIX09 Keynote and Session Videos

    Whew…what a show! Thanks to everyone who joined us in Las Vegas last week for our fourth MIX conference, MIX09 . It was great to meet many of you in person and to associate Twitter aliases with real names. It’s awesome that someone can walk up and say, “Hi, I’m WoogyChuck,” and I actually know what that...
  • Blog Post: MIX09 Sessions

    Fantastic news! The team that's responsible for the MIX09 site has heard your feedback, and they've created an always-up-to-date, simple list of all MIX09 keynotes and sessions for easy viewing and download. If you want to read about some other download options, or if you want to rename your downloaded...
  • Blog Post: Getting Ready for MIX09

    Our MIX09 conference in Las Vegas is only one week away, and things are heating up! We’ve finalized the keynote content, published all of our session titles and abstracts (well, except for a handful we’ll announce at the event), locked-down the on-stage customers and demos, and handed off the bits for...
  • Blog Post: MIX09: Objectified Screening, Scott Guthrie Interview, and More

    First, we've coordinated a special screening of Gary Hustwit's new documentary film, Objectified , at MIX09 in Las Vegas! We'll be showing it only days after its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, and Gary will be on-hand for some Q&A after the film. I'm a huge...
  • Blog Post: MIX09

    Yes, I’m still alive, and no, the rumors about the PDC Hard Hat Challenges melting my brain are false (it was only a minor contusion). The good news is that I’ve fully recovered, and I’m now focused on our upcoming MIX09 event in Las Vegas! This time around, I play the role of MIX09 Keynote Owner . That...
  • Blog Post: Being Green at PDC2008

    As the Content Owner for PDC2008, I'm now a member of the Tier 1 Events Council at Microsoft. This is a group that meets a few times a year to share ideas and best practices around our largest events (like Tech·Ed , MIX, and PDC). We met all day today and covered a number of great topics. One of our...
  • Blog Post: Donkey Kong at MIX08: Behind the Scenes

    In the two weeks since our MIX08 event in Las Vegas, I've been asked many times about Steve Wiebe's attempt to re-claim the Donkey Kong world record at our TAO attendee party on March 5th, 2008. So, I thought I'd document what happened "behind the scenes" for those of you who may be curious...
  • Blog Post: MIX08 Show Off Winners

    It's hard to believe that MIX08 is over. I was involved in so many aspects of the event that it seems like I attended in some parallel universe! At least I got to see many of you there. Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry for Show Off . Thomas and I weeded out the less inspiring entries and ended...
  • Blog Post: What Does “Sold Out” Actually Mean?

    You’ve probably heard that next week’s MIX08 conference in Las Vegas is sold out. But do you know what that actually means? Does it mean that we decided months ago to cap registrations at an arbitrary number of attendees? Or perhaps we picked a mystical date? Or a financial target? Or the...
  • Blog Post: The King of Kong and Show Off at MIX08

    We're only one month away from MIX08 in Las Vegas , and I hope you've already registered! In addition to our new MIX UX track for designers , we have a lot of great sessions on the schedule. But MIX isn't just about pumping your brain full of raw content. It's about networking, inspiration, and good...
  • Blog Post: SEAMonster Loosed to CodePlex

    Well, I had good intentions. Ever since my first post about SEAMonster in October, 2007, I've wanted to refactor and clean-up the code for release. In the meantime, I've received many, many e-mails asking when that would happen. To everyone who has patiently waited, today's the day. SEAMonster is now...
  • Blog Post: Helvetica: The Documentary

    I ran across Jeff Atwood 's blog post, Typography: Where Engineers and Designers Meet , about a week ago. Like Jeff, I've been interested in fonts and typography for a long time. As a matter of fact, I used to create bitmap fonts for the TI-99/4a, Commodore 64 , and Atari 400/800. I'm sure if I dug through...
  • Blog Post: What Do I Do? Top sites, MIX08, and PDC08.

    A few days ago, I received the following e-mail: Help me out here. I've been reading your blog off and on for years and I can't figure out what it is you do. Your obviously involved with the PDC and MIX conferences, you send a lifesize cardboard cutout of yourself as your resume, you've made a...
  • Blog Post: Programming Collective Intelligence

    I tend to read a lot of books , and most of them have a technical focus. Every once and awhile, I run across a gem that is timely, coherent, unique, and well written. Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications by Toby Segaran is one of those books. If you've ever wanted...
  • Blog Post: MIX08 Contests

    Let's kick off the new year with a post about our upcoming MIX08 event in Las Vegas . This is the third year for this annual conference, and we've found ourselves with a unique problem: we have so much great content that we've had to say "no" to a lot of really good sessions just to fit everything into...
  • Blog Post: MIX07 Session Recordings

    It's been awhile since my last post! The group I'm in, Developer and Platform Evangelism (otherwise known as DPE), is responsible for both MIX and PDC. If you hadn't heard, our sold out MIX07 event took place earlier this week in Las Vegas, and the weeks leading up to it were hectic for many of us. The...
  • Blog Post: Redesign the MIX Home Page and Win a Trip to Las Vegas

    Do you consider yourself a CSS master? If so, how would you like to use your skills to redesign the MIX home page ? We recently announced the REMIX contest , and if you submit one of the top three designs, you'll receive paid registration to the MIX07 conference, three nights at The Venetian hotel, and...
  • Blog Post: Are You Attending MIX07?

    You're probably familiar with our big Tech·Ed and PDC events, but do you know about MIX ? We had our first MIX conference in 2006, and it was a big success. Like any good movie (and some bad ones, I suppose), the sequel was being planned- and budgeted-for almost before the credits rolled on the first...
