  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary Day 4 (Last of 5) – June 10, 2010

    Dear TechEd Diary, Unlike TechEd of years past, Thursday marked the very last day of the conference.  I went to a few sessions, but the best part of the day was the all-attendee party held for us at Mardi Gras World .  Food, live music, oppressive heat (wow.. it was hot in that warehouse) and...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary Day 2 – June 8, 2010

    Dear TechEd Diary, After breakfast at the hotel with some teammates (it’s nice to know someone with access to the concierge room), the morning was spent editing videos from the previous two days.  Hopefully by the time you’re reading this you’ve already enjoyed the footage and embarrassments documented...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary: Spot the Geek!

    Dear TechEd Diary, Here I am at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, sitting at gate G17 awaiting my Delta flight to New Orleans.  And already I’ve seen a few other suspiciously looking geeky people at the gate.  It’s a fun little game I call “spot the geek”. “Really, Kevin… you’re being inconsiderate...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary Day 1 – June 7, 2010

    Dear TechEd Diary, Today was the first day of TechEd , which of course involves getting registered (unless you arrive early enough the day before to get over to registration… which I didnt’t) followed by the Opening Keynote.  Bob Mugila and a cast of several “demo monkeys” impressed us all with...

    As I’ve done in the past, here is a compilation of random scenes (aka “Video Diary”) of our team’s Readiness Launch event for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 that happened in Bloomington, Minnesota on May 27, 2010. I was the presenter for the IT Pro track covering those products.  We discussed planning...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary Day 3 – June 9, 2010

    Dear TechEd Diary, It was another long day of sessions, followed by another long night of parties. Actually, the first party was really a user group meeting disguised as a party. My teammate and friend John Weston helped organize the first meeting for the group, and they used the fact that TechEd...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Diary Day 0 – June 6, 2010

    Dear TechEd Diary, Here we go! Sunday was spent traveling to New Orleans, and then spending quality time in the French Quarter with my team, Microsoft “influencers”, and good friends. “Hey Kevin… Is that you doing Karaoke at the Cat’s Meow ?” No comment. PS – I’m working out some issues with buggy video...
  • Blog Post: Get on the bus, Gus!

    This was such a big hit last year that they’re doing it again.  Starting in Montreal on May 21, 2010, the bus rolls on down south and a little bit west, eventually ending up in New Orleans on June 5, just in time for TechEd North America.  Stops along the way will give you an opportunity to...
