So FINALLY we can talk about a project that’s been happening for a while now. I’ve picked up a job for Tech.Ed 2009 as overall infrastructure guy so i’ve been working on ensuring that we have the best technology to deliver and awesome event. Aside from that we had a question earlier in the year which was…”what if we give every paid teched delegate a netbook with windows 7”…. While my head is still spinning from the awesomeness of this idea and all the planning we are doing, Nick Hodge has put the hard yards and pushed it through.

So a BIG shout out to the hard work Nick Hodge has been working so hard on this for the past few months. Now we go into the fun part of getting them on the network and doing some awesome things. We’ve already started planning this, with a wireless survey of the Gold Coast Convention Centre  - as you can see, there’s a lot of air to cover!
