  • Blog Post: It's on, Baby!

    A feeble attempt to close a long gap in posts... with some "easy" news: In case anyone didn't know... PDC05 started yesterday with a bang :-) You can follow the blogosphere buzz at PDC Bloggers 2005, on http://pdcbloggers.net . We'll also be posting new content to Channel 9 every day. RSS feeds (which...
  • Blog Post: As if I need to be reminded...

    Brendan Tompkins made my day - if anyone cares - when he offered up a PDC Countdown image on his blog (best tagline I've seen in a while: "Blog First. Ask Questions Later."). Here it is: 69 days! Yikes! PS: Now, don't lets get to be thinking that I'm indicating preferences for Brendan's " Blog...
  • Blog Post: If you build it (part 2)...

    OK, we can't keep a secret. Check it out here .
  • Blog Post: If you build it...

    ... then someone might just do something wierd with it...
  • Blog Post: PDC05 Vision (Three Different Ones)

    A couple of us ( Jeff Sandquist , Jeremy Mazner , Michael Lehman , and me) recorded a show for .NET Rocks on Friday, with PDC05 as the topic. It'll be available on Monday, 6/20. We had fun with this show. Someone (Carl?) asked us what the "vision" for PDC05 is... we more or less answered / rambled...
  • Blog Post: Just what you needed: a PDC05 Crossword Puzzle (updated)

    I just posted a PDC05 Crossword Puzzle to the sandbox on Channel 9. Just seemed like something that had to be done. I'm sure that all of you out there won't find it much of a challenge :-) Update: 6/18: fixed a small bug. New outline and .ZIP file. There's a ZIP file there that contains the clues...
  • Blog Post: What makes PDC05 special?

    Listen to PDC BuzzCast #2 , hosted by Michael Lehman , a technical evangelist on Jeff Sandquist's team. Michael is working up a great series of podcasts on the way to PDC05; they're in the new PDC area on Channel 9. This time, Michael (who has a truly authenic radio voice, doesn't he?) interviewed...
  • Blog Post: PDC on .NET Rocks, airing on 6/20

    We're recording a show tomorrow about PDC05 on the .NET Rocks show, to be "aired" on Monday, 6/20. Check it out here on Monday!
  • Blog Post: This shouldn't be too hard...

    Registration for PDC05 opened last week, and we all sighed great sighs of relief; since then it's been fun to watch the community buzz ramp up about it. To get here, a lot of people put in some pretty good hours and not a little bit of sweat: content, community, marketing and demand generation, logistics...
  • Blog Post: Where does the time go?

    Yes, it's been a while since my last post. I wish I could say that since then I've learned to play a musical instrument, or a new language. But no. I did find myself standing at the front door to my house looking for the cardreader. "They" say that the purpose of time is to keep everything from happening...
  • Blog Post: Jeremy is in the House

    More pieces are falling into place as we begin to this baby up on the centerline of the runway. Jeremy Mazner has signed on (he’s on my team, so I pulled a Vic on him) as Content Owner, the role I played at the last PDC. Jeremy’s head is exploding as we speak, but he’ll be OK. At the last PDC, Jeremy...
  • Blog Post: The B-A Room

    Seems like only yesterday that we were down at the LA Convention Center, closing up after the panel sessions, enjoying one last espresso at the embedded Starbucks, wondering one more time what the “Wondrous Guy” (the guy on the PDC banners who is staring skyward) was thinking, and then we were all jetting...
  • Blog Post: About those Resource Cards (Part I: Theory)

    Robert has asked ( publicly , in fact) to be released from the tyranny of the PDC Resource Card. Before we do that - IF we do that - it's probably worth explaining just what we were thinking back then. It made sense at the time, I'm sure. Some background first: A goal for PDC'03 was to "increase the...
  • Blog Post: A Gripping Tale

    About 2 years ago my boss, Vic Gundotra, walked in my office and in a manner one might use to, say, borrow a spare power adapter told me that he'd volunteered me to be content owner for PDC'03. Given that the PDC has always been run out of his org, "assigned" is probably a better word than "volunteered...
