  • Blog Post: Thanks, Geoff Appleby

    I have Geoff Appleby to thank (and Charles Sterling ) for planting the seed in some people's minds for me to go to Australia back when Chuck was soliciting names to keynote TechEd 2005 in Australia/New Zealand. I finally met Geoff in Canberra . Thanks, Geoff!
  • Blog Post: The Charcoal, Canberra, Australia

    A photo from my last official stop on Frank Arrigo's Steak House Tour of Australia - The Charcoal in Canberra - with (l to r) Frank Arrigo , Jeff Alexander , David Treadwell , David Lemphers , and myself.
  • Blog Post: Andrew Coates Rocks

    I'm finally getting around to going through photos from the trip to Australia for the Ready Launch Tour. This photo is of me with Andrew Coates , who was my de facto host on the tour and terrific presentation coach. As noted in my Adelaide post, I don't think Coatesy was blown away by speaking skills...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Cry

    Friday night we unofficially added one more steak house to the Steak House Tour of Australia: The Prime , which is a cozy restaurant nestled in the lower level of the GPO Building. Unfortunately, Saturday was our last day in Sydney. We woke up earlier than needed because I misread the departure time...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Rock Canberra

    In Canberra (Australia’s national capital) we stayed at Hyatt Hotel Canberra , which was quite elegant. The event for Canberra was held at the National Convention Center. The community launch event at Microsoft Canberra was terrific as I finally met Anthony Borton and Geoff Appleby . I also spoke briefly...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Rock Sydney

    Our trip from Melbourne to Sydney got off to a great start; Qantas oversold Economy Class and we were bumped up to comfy Business Class. If only we could have such luck on the mind-numbing flight back to the States come next Saturday. We arrived in Sydney as the skies began to clear from a morning...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Rock Melbourne

    We were up early for our flight to Melbourne . This was a quick flight - only an hour or so. We arrived in Melbourne and got a great ride to the wrong hotel (our fault, not the driver’s – he took us where we told him to go). We finally made it to the correct one, Sofitel Melbourne , in time to get unpacked...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Rock Adelaide

    Our United flight from San Francisco to Sydney was largely uneventful, but served as reminder (my last 747 flight was in '88) that Economy Class bites. I had planned to rehearse my demos sometime during the flight, but there was so little space I didn't bother powering up my notebook. I had even carted...
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Connect

    Arrived in San Francisco. Having dinner at a Mexican restaurant by Gate 94 in the international terminal. Boarding should start in an hour or so. Last time I was on a 747 was back in '88.
  • Blog Post: Australia 2005 - Ready to Go

    The bags are packed and I've been rehearsing my demos for Launch 2005 events in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. From Seattle-Tacoma, we're flying to San Francisco and then catching an overnight flight to Sydney. Once there, we jump back on a plane and make the hop over to Adelaide. If all goes...
