Well, it was great being in Vegas a week ago - it was a great event and there were some pretty cool announcements that were very compelling. The Guy Kawasaki / Steve Ballmer interview was priceless.

I'd thought I'd wrap-up this post with a few choice photos from the event:
Crowded at the Keynote - the singers voice from the opening act sounded exactly like Johnny Cash...
The Surface demo station was way cool...got some cool video for Silverlight later...
The XBOX 360 Rock Band Competition was fierce - I'm now 2/2 for Elvis sightings in Vegas...
The Hard Rock Silverlight 2.0 Memorabilia Demo at http://memorabilia.hardrock.com/ with Deep-Zoom was simply amazing!
And, of course, it was great to catch-up with some old friends...
