It’s always nice to be able to post actual honest-to-goodness winners! We had a promotion earlier this year called Webcast Magic and as part of this program we picked one of our webcasts customers, David Soussan of Michigan, as our lucky Webcasts Magic winner. We flew David Soussan and his wife, Christi, out here to present his webcast on Network Debugging at MS Studios.
My predecessor and Emerging Media guru, Dean Andrews, met David and Christi and took them around the Microsoft campus, complete with a trip to the Microsoft Museum, Microsoft Company Store, and MS Studios, where he recorded his webcast. Later David and Christi had dinner at the Space Needle, compliments of Microsoft.
David gave a great presentation and I’ll be sure to post a link to the recording here when it’s available. Kudos to David Soussan, on his win and excellent Webcast!
Thank you! And let me echo how much fun it was! Everyone was extremely helpful -- Jennifer Walts changing around our accomodations and stuff behind the scenes, Marci Stringfellow on the webcast with me making sure everything went smoothly including last minute edits to the presentation, Dave Gross on the mixing board trying to make my notebook's fan noise not so obvious, and Dean Andrews taking us around campus.
Though I've probably attended > 20 webcasts on various topics, I had no idea just how much work went into preparing for each of them. As a technical person needing a quickstart on technical topics, I can't say enough positive things about the whole webcast concept. Other than "More, please!"
Last week the webcast made it into your index at
Look for Tue, 15 May 2007 TechNet Webcast: The Art of Network Debugging (Level 200). It starts at Level 200, but goes much deeper half way through.
So thanks again for a great program!
