I can't wait for Mix to start... Friday we locked down all the bits we are giving out (and it is a LOT of them)... polished some very cool demos and got our hands on the final version of some other cool stuff. You could really feel the buzz growing over in building 42 and building 10!
I am very excited about the talk I am giving... It will be a lot of fun and will cover a some great Silverlight media stuff, some new ASP.NET AJAX work and of course Expression and Visual Studio.
If you are there, please come... If not, look for the demo and slides after the event.

If that is not enough -- here is a screen shoot of the amazing work Corrina (our designer) did for this demo... As I mentioned earlier, Steve Marx did a HUGE amount of work on it... The demo (and the product) are MUCH better for his efforts...
