  • Blog Post: Up the Mighty Swan

    Once all the demos were delivered, we were treated to an evening out on the Swan River. As you can see, we were treated like kings, cruising downstream with the magnetic views of Perth in the background. We reached the apex of the cruise at about sunset. Watching a host of Kite surfers do their stuff...
  • Blog Post: Preparing for Perth

    I got into Perth this afternoon, and after a bite to eat, headed straight to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. What a great location. Of course, the sound, vision, technical, and events crews were still in the process of "bumping in" and I wondered over to the Auditorium, where the...

  • Blog Post: MIX08 - my interests

    It seems half of our team is at Mix08 in Las Vegas (which somehow sounds a little better than Seattle - can't put my finger on it) and I'm actually excited about this event.

  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Take Two

    So I'm here at Melbourne with the second iteration of the Heroes Happens Launch, and if anything, I'm enjoying it more than Sydney. Last week I spent much of my time chatting to our MVP's, Usergroup Leaders and customers. And although I've been meeting heaps of people here too, I've taken the time out...
  • Blog Post: Impressions of a Launch Event

    This is not my first launch whilst working for Microsoft. There's been Windows Vista, Exchange 2007, and a while back the 2005 Ready Launch (Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005). And Microsoft launches are certainly not new to me in my career. I was there way back when Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and...

  • Blog Post: BIGger and .NETter

    This evening I had the opportunity to meet the members of the Sydney .NET Usergroup , and the Brisbane Infrastructure Group . The first was through a happy misunderstanding, and I stepped in at the last minute to host the .NET Usergroup. This group has been run by Adam Cogan for (much) more than the...
  • Blog Post: Split Personality

    I love Unified Communications. I really do. This is seriously amongst the coolest technology I've encountered in a career of cool technologies. But it's not only the technology itself that I love, also what it does for me. Do you feel like you simply have too many persona? I mean people know you at work...
