Continuing my "not exactly..." series of posts related to surface computing (see http://blogs.msdn.com/usisvde/archive/2008/01/17/roll-your-own-surface-well-not-exactly.aspx for more scintillating insights), I'd like to point out that there's a great opportunity for those with an interest in healthcare and life sciences to get a chance to see and, yes, touch a surface computer at the upcoming Microsoft Health & Life Sciences Developer and Solutions Conference 2008.
The conference will take place in Atlantic City, NJ from April 22 - April 24, and will provide high-powered speakers and strong content for those who attend at the bargain price of free. You can register from the link up on http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032360756&Culture=en-US.
Maybe they'll even show you that snazzy "Vision for Healthcare Video" if you lucky...
