In case those coming into town for the 2005 MVP Global Summit were interesting in chatting with me, here's my event diary for this week. (Non-native-English-speaking MVPs can hover over the highlighted words for a translation from slang into "standard American-English".)

  • Even though it's not affiliated with the MVP Global Summit, I'll mention it anyway since it happens the same week: I'll be at CodeSlam on Tuesday night. The name is a play on Poetry Slam, but instead of reciting poetry, you share your code. If you're an MVP with a cool app you want to contribute to CodeGallery, and you want to be part of the biggest geek slumber party in Redmond, let me know. I can bring one guest. (However, since I am old and decrepit and have a job to go to the following morning, I probably won't last the whole night.)
  • I am trying to finagle a ticket to the Windows Shell/User MVP dinner on Thursday evening.
  • If I can't get a ticket to the MVP dinner, I'll definitely crash the Windows Shell/User MVP lunch on Friday.
  • I'll pop by the MVP Barbecue on Saturday to touch base with the MVPs in disciplines other than Windows Shell/User.

If you want to be sure to catch me, drop me a line and I'll try to make time to see you. Note, however, that I'm doing this outside of my "regular job", so please be a bit understanding if a work emergency forces me to do some last-minute rescheduling.
