Hey, I am going to Mix08 at the Venetian in Las Vegas.  It's a great conference for you web developer and designers out there, and of, course -- a fun party.  Will you be there?  Let me know!  Let's meet up.

Oh, and here's the 'official stuff' (so you can get your boss to approve your attendance)

Keynote presentations from Steve Ballmer, Scott Guthrie, Guy Kawasaki and other distinguished speakers unveiling the latest web-oriented products and technologies. A comprehensive program of sessions for designers, developers and business strategists led by industry experts. Hands-on labs and workshops for developers and designers. A chance to connect with experts on a wide range of topics for one-on-one guidance and inspiration. An opportunity to network with executives from Microsoft and some of the world’s largest web sites and interactive agencies.
