And I thought summer was supposed to be a slow time around Redmond... not.

Following the success of the Partner Conference this week in Redmond, folks are getting ready for the annual Microsoft Global Exchange, a.k.a. MGX (previously known as MGB).

So, why is this important?

It's an opportunity for many employees to get together, talk and exchange ideas on how to best meet our customer's and partner's needs with current and upcoming product and services. People take the time out of their summer holidays to not only attend but contribute to and present at a number of sessions. I'm sure that a number of employees will blog about the event on line as they have in past years.

Interesting factoid: not only will it be hot and humid, the Microsoft event overlaps with a major gathering of Shriners.

I'll dust off my fez with great respect. (Disclaimer: I support the Shriners Hospitals for Children... they do super work.)
