TechEd North America was a blast this year in New Orleans!

I co-presented two sessions (one with Brett and another with Larry) and both went well.

I got to pitch in and help with a few other sessions (with Michael Greene, Nick Smith, Bob, and Soumya Das Bhaumik).

I ate too well - got to see Chef Paul Prudhomme again (made it to his restaurant twice last week but only got to eat once!  Thanks Maxime…I usually eat at drive-throughs while traveling…K-Pauls ROCKES!).

I also managed to hang with lots of friends / customers of Microsoft, analysts, and co-workers. 

I had the chance to talk with Adam from TechNet Edge as well, and he and I chatted about the Linux Integration Services for Hyper-V (imbedded below from the TechNet Edge site).

If you didn’t make it to TechEd North America, I’ll be recapping some of my observations and the details in the coming weeks (like what I learned from Soumya at his session on DiskShadow!).
