mix 07 day 3 – it’s a wrap

I suppose I’m not done with my MIX ’07 reports yet. Day 3 was interesting… Reverse chronologically : I was waiting outside the Venetian to catch a cab to LAS when I saw 54375 people waiting in line to catch a cab to LAS. Needless to say, after a big conference, its going to be…

More StartupCamp and an annoying executive

So here I was, standing outside the Metropolitan room, taking a break from StartupCamp (which is so awesomely awesome), lunching, when David Berlind from ZDNet pulls up right in front of me with his cameraman, and starts interviewing, Rich Green, exec VP @ Sun .

Live from StartupCamp

Jonathan Schwartz just did his keynote at StartupCamp. Although I’ve been following his blog for a while, this is the first time I’ve heard him speak. What’s annoying how he’s trying to tease people with this whole Project Indiana thing. After his keynote he opened it up to questions and said, “Does anyone want to…


mix07 – the panels

I attended two panels over the last couple of days. Open Source, the Web, Interoperability and Microsoft : The folks on the panel included Rob Conery, Miguel de Icaza, Andi Gutmans, Sam Ramji, and Mike Schroepfer. This was an exciting session. It was just reassuring to see folks like Sam Ramji (Microsoft) involving people from…

mix07 day 2

First off, I must give kudos to the folks maintaining http://visitmix.com. They’ve been keeping that site as up-to-date as humanly possible.

mix 07 day 1

So day 1 of MIX 07 is behind us. I’d speculated yesterday that MIX will have been the most impactful conference I will have attended during my time here at Microsoft. We made quite a few announcements yesterday, and Silverlight clearly stole the day. One common theme between all the keynote presenters : the didn’t…

We’re ready to blow your socks off – MIX 07

So here I am at MIX 07, standing next to SanjayP (although he doesn’t quite know who I am, and doesn’t know that I’m standing next to him so that I can get in some pictures). In my opinion, this is the most important conference we will have held since my time here at Microsoft….

StartupCamp – 5/7

From their site : “Startup Camp is an unconference-style event that’s dedicated to bringing together the various members of the startup community for a…
