Watching the TechED 2006 action poolside

PoolsideGet your frozen margarita, dual core laptop and favorite rubber ducky and head to the pool.  Might as well since this year you’ll be able to watch and listen to the festivities on the http://VirtualTechEd.com website.  It’ll be interesting to see how much of the show, seminars and “social” events are actually broadcast. 

I would recommend tuning into the opening keynote on 6/11 at 7pm EST.  We’ll have Ray Ozzie, Bob Muglia and Chris Capossela showing off some kewl stuff.  Maybe they’ll do some of those kewl virtualization demos, or something fascinating from Windows Vista.  It sure would be kewl if they did a BDD of Halo 3 to 1000 workstations and waiting TechEd gamers.  Now that my friends is business desktop deployment.  Time to get down to business fragging.

And yes, this is a current shot of the homepage at virtualteched.com from my patio.  The laptop is on battery so the brightness is a bit low and obviously the exposure is set for the background, not the black Lenovo Thinkpad T60 in the foreground.  The picture doesn’t do the pool justice but as you’ll recall, it’s big enough for a few of your friends.  Sorry, you can’t see the “refreshments” just to the left of the laptop. Gotta go work on on some important business.

  • Well seeing that your name is on the AICPA Tech 2006 agenda... I'll not be meeting you at the AICPA even this year ...because I'll be in person at TechEd.

    (okay so rubbing it in I know)

  • Yea, Boston this time of year will be fun.  Should be nice and cool compared to here.  As you observed, I'll be working this weekend and early next week in Austin.  It's about 1300 miles closer to the house, too.  

    Have fun at TechED.  Be sure to write.  :)
