The MSDN and TechNet teams recently helped to launch VORT-EX08 (Virtual Online Remix- Total Experience), an online “virtual” conference for IT professionals, developers, and designers in the Europe.
There are cool virtual booths for both MSDN and TechNet. To see them, sign in to the Vortex site with your Live ID, then click on the Community button.
Choose MSDN or TechNet. The virtual experience will take you to a virtual "expo hall" - click on the MSDN or TechNet logo to enter the booth.
Check out the links to learn about Forums, Galleries, Social Bookmarking and more. And definitely watch the video. It has great info on the sites and our new social tools and features some cool video effects.
This whole approach to virtual events is new for us, so please let us know what you think!
VORT-EX08 - The site won't load with IE8B2 in native IE8 mode or IE7 Compat mode and Firefox 3 also fails with Vista x64.
