An earlier post on this site (http://blogs.technet.com/rclaus/archive/2005/12/22/416448.aspx) announcing the launch of the TNX:TechNet Exchange tour generated some excitement as well as some “concerns” as to why we are only going to 5 cities this time around… I wanted to make sure that I responded to the comments.
So why only 5 cities? What can I say… It came down to timing and budget constraints. But chin up - all materials will be available on a post event website (site URL to be determined – check back here to find out) and we’re even toying with the idea of somehow capturing the largest event in a web friendly format to be consumed by anyone who wants to tune in.
But don’t worry – we will be getting out to a larger number of cities on the next tour scheduled for March where we’ll be talking about “Secure well managed infrastructure… if you come, you can build it”… By the luck of the draw, I am working that one with Bruce, so I hope you aren’t sick of seeing me by then!
I attended the TNX:TechNet Exchange in Vancouver today. It was interesting, informatative and a positive experience. I don't think I've been to one Technet event that was anything but interesting, informative and valuable to me.
I have a question that I wanted to ask today but did not get the opportunity. Rick, you gave a good demonstration of the potential of Live Communication Server. I work for a company that has many branch offices. Does LCS automatically group the users, either by OU, Distribution List or security group? Our branch staff frequently message their entire branch as a group. I really don't want them to have to manually create their branch group in order to send a message to the whole branch.
Keep up the good work.
