Top 10 Things I learnt at the TechEd Sydney Party

Speaking about the TechEd Party, I learnt a few things during the evening:

  1. Apparently "I am the man".
  2. TechEd has been awesome
  3. Never play XBOX360 with a rugby league player
  4. Folks told me I did a good job with the opening keynote
  5. There are men, but "I am the man"
  6. Water is always the best option
  7. Don't eat and talk at the same time.
  8. Wash your hands *before* offering to say G'day
  9. Don't stand in the front row of the stage when there are XBOX Cheerleaders performing
  10. Sydney nightclub bouncers are the dumbest, rudest, most arrogant people in the world. Especially those from the Home Nightclub - I mean don't they read blogs.  More later......

    I never thought I hear an Aussie say this: "Water is always the best option"

    Are you sure you’re Australian? 😉

     after seeing the statistics of the amount of liquid that was drunk over the 3 days of Tech.Ed, you will understand where this is coming from.

     Something on the order of 20,000 bottles of soft drink & water, and a whopping 40,000 bottles of beer (there are no extra zeros in these numbers!).

     Knowing how I felt Friday morning (and most of the day), I will have to agree with Frank on this one.  Water (especially on Fridays) is absolutely the best option  🙂

    Number 9.Don’t stand in the front row of the stage when there are XBOX Cheerleaders performing

    Yes the front row of the stage is probably the worst place, and the front row of the Audience is the best 😀

    Mmmm XBOX360 cheer girls…..

    As I did last month, I looked back on BlogBeat for my top 20 posts for the month of August. Not surprisingly…
