WebDU – Microsoft drinks, Expression and yes, Adobe can come to.

Drinking? did someone say Drinking! Sadly folks Microsoft can't be at WebDU in the way we have done in the previous rounds of this conference, due to Adobe Oz not feeling comfortable with the big ol MS logo being in the same room as them. That being said, we are putting on some drinks in the bar nearest the banquet and there will be some full product give-always (limited stock, act now while they last). Yes infamous Finula will be the hostess who has the AMEX mostess, and so we hope this will be an alternative way to show you the Microsoft love is still there and not forgotten.

If this floats your boat, then come over as drinks (Zeta Bar, next door to the Banquet) start at 9.30 PM through to 1 AM or what we like to call " MS Happy Hour Expressions". There  is a catch, you need to show your WebDU badges to score the freebies โ€“ long story, basically last time we did something like this a navy fleet was docked into town.... there was some fast talking about expenses that day I'll tell you..

You just need to click on this link to get why its important to do shaky faces at WebDU If you can't make the drinks and you're unable to due to religious/personal dislike to drunken shaky faced WebDU geek's doing things that can only be described as part-funny and part-disturbing, never fear as you can check out some of the pieces of the Microsoft goodness at the WACOM booth (check these guys out this year if you get a chance).

WACOM and Windows Vista gives you Tablet PC capabilities? (which is damn cool).

Yes, Adobe folks are more than welcome to attend and you get to have access to spirits, to help promote the spirit of interoperability.

Person with the most disturbing shaky face gets a MS Prize!

    It’s less "being" than "buying". The pattern’s quite clear by now.

    (btw, don’t call it "Expressions":

    Well to be fair, we’ve been sponsors right alongside Adobe year after year. (Last year Microsoft handed out Visual Studio 2005 to all and I’m glad they did, as that’s why I now work for them)

    Only this year something has changed? *ponders what could that be* ๐Ÿ˜€

    Adobe can take the aggressor road, we’ll take the high road ๐Ÿ™‚ Pitty, WebDU was supposed to be about "universal web downunder" – sad to see Adobe hijack it is all ๐Ÿ˜€

    I remember a past MXDU event where a shinny platnum Amex card got thrashed so much the magnetic strip was wearing off, good times.

    Wish I could be there to provide my shaky face, but I decided I couldn’t miss out on the fun ๐Ÿ˜›
