My colleague, Korby Parnell, recently decided to withdraw from speaking on the “Microsoft Blogs: Pioneering Corporate Transparency” panel discussion that’s been scheduled for the upcoming Business Blogging Summit conference on Oct. 25-27 in Seattle, WA. I’m very honored that Korby recommended me as his replacement and even more so that the conference people agreed to accept me. This will be my first real blogging oriented conference, and I’m very excitedly looking forward to it.


   Shortly after that, I will be at the SharePoint Connections conference on Nov. 6-9 in Las Vegas, NV to present a couple of sessions: one on Building Collaboration and Community Solutions Using the 2007 Microsoft Office System” and the other on “Ten Ways to Become a Hero with Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0”. This will be the biggest SharePoint oriented event in the U.S. within the next several months, so I’d strongly encourage you to attend while there are still some tickets remaining. For those of you, who will be attending the conference, we’ll have a demo booth in the Expo area, so please stop by.


   Then, early next year, I’ll be at the Microsoft European SharePoint Conference on Feb 12-14 in Berlin, Germany. Fitz and Arpan have already committed to attend as well, so I’m sure that I’ll have a wonderful time. The session agenda and schedule are still being planned, but most likely, I will be presenting at least one session if not two.
