First off, it's great to be blogging on this site. As Qixing has mentioned in a previous post, you'll see me provide entries to this blog from time to time providing my thoughts on web design and the exciting things Microsoft is doing in this area.
This is a very exciting time for Microsoft and User-Centric design. Microsoft's premier design conference, MIX, kicks off on Monday, April 30th, 2007 in Las Vegas. I'm really excited about this for a number of reasons. First off, I'll be able to meet with many of you there - my photo is below so you can recognize me. If you see me, please stop by and say hello! I'd love to meet you and trade design stories with you. Second, the event is going to showcase a number of new technologies that Microsoft has recently released, including the newly branded Silverlight (this was previously given the very pedestrian name of WPF/e). If you keep looking out at this blog during MIX, both Qixing and I will be providing insight on news, announcements and points of interest.
I've just packed my bags and I'm ready to head out to Las Vegas first thing tomorrow (Sunday, April 29). Stay tuned because MIX is going to be a great conference!
