This year I’m in the privileged position of being involved in possibly the greatest conference the world has ever seen. Yes, I’m talking about Mix09 – Microsoft’s annual web conference held at the Venetian in Las Vegas. This year’s conference is being held 18-20th Match and promises to be a stunning affair with jar dropping keynotes, industry leading speakers and inspiring sessions all set amongst the best place to party! :-)
For your chance to win a free pass (worth $1400) to this year’s event all you have to do is:
Dream up a killer app that uses services from Live Services and/or Live Framework and record a one minute video of yourself presenting it via Soapbox or YouTube.
As part of your pass you get full access to the conference, food and drink and an invite to the hottest party on the strip at club TAO – oh yeah and drinks are on us :-) All you need to do is get yourself there and pay hotel bills.

<p>No takers as yet huh? I'm tempted to get my thinking cap on!</p>
<p>If I get my much-better-looking-than-me wife to do the video can I still come? :)</p>
<p>Ok, here's my idea: <a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://silverlight.live.com/Video.aspx?setName=Idea+for+a+killer+Live+Services+app">http://silverlight.live.com/Video.aspx?setName=Idea+for+a+killer+Live+Services+app</a></p>
<p>It involves using Live Mesh and Windows Live groups to share and collaborate around search results from Live Search.</p>
<p>I felt completely ridiculous doing this by the way! Can't you just ask us to put our ideas into an email next time? :)</p>
<p>@Oran, speculative stuff is cool too! More the merrier!</p>
<p>@JamieT - thanks man :-)</p>
