Day 5 – AGAIN Yet Another TechEd Day
Thursday? Already? Wow. I can’t believe the week is almost over. And yet I feel like I could use a week of sleep to catch up.
Today I worked the TLC booth again. Had some fun conversations and video taped a few good questions and answers. (I expect to have time to edit them sometime next week, so please be patient.)
The highlight of the day, of course, was the all-attendee party that Microsoft threw at Fenway park. After some good hotdogs, fries, and a coke, I took a shot at hitting a ball in a batting cage (I did manage to hit the ball once or twice).
And then Chris Haaker and I walked up to the stands to settle in for the evening’s entertainment: Train.
Coolest demo I saw:Mobility features and improvements coming in Microsoft Exchange 2007 and the next generation of mobile devices. HUGE improvements in management, security, and just useful and really cool features.
Funniest thing I heard:Protest outside of Fenway as we were lined up to walk in – put on by nVidia:
“What do we want?!” “Lower TCO!” “When do we want it?!” “NOW!”… etc.
Tomorrow I’ll get up nice and early so I can check in (hopefully getting first class upgrade) for my flight home – which is Saturday morning. And then it’s back to the show!
