The Countdown To Mix07 Has Started!

Cross-posted from the IE Blog I can’t believe it’s already been almost a year since MIX06, and the countdown for MIX07 has started. With 63 days until MIX07 starts, and the early bird discount still available, now is the time to register! While the list of sessions is still being finalized, the IE team is…


Mix06: Photos

I’ve posted my Mix06 photos online at I also put them up on Flickr as an experiment here


Mix06: Creating Mashups with Yahoo!

I remember the days when Yahoo was just a little search engine, when it was still beta and long before or Google.  But this morning, I atteneded a session titled “Building Web Applications Using Yahoo! Web Services”.  I was very highly impressed. Yahoo! is doing a lot of work to open up their API’s…


Mix06: Do you like the XBOX360?

Sadly, today was the last day of Mix06, and things started winding down this morning.  I think the coolest thing I saw this afternoon though, was when the Channel 9 team (or was it ten) came by the XBox station that I was manning and asked if they could interview the couple of guys who…


Mix06: Mashups, Origami, MCE, Tao

We’re about 1/2 of the way through day 2 here, and there is still some great stuff happening here.  If you didn’t hear, yesterday, we announced a Go Live license for Atlas!  This freakin’ rocks!  I’m really looking forward to starting to play with it more! MashUps After sitting through some of the keynotes and…


Mix06: Atlas is ALIVE!

There is one other super AWESOME thing that has come out of Mix. Atlas March CTP now has a GO LIVE license!  That means you can put this on production boxes and use it to impress your customers!


Mix06: Day 1

Well, we’re about 1/2 way through day one here at Mix06 and all I can do is say WOW. WOW! The keynotes this morning were pretty good, I’m not a big keynote fan, I’d much rather get my info seeing demos one-on-one or hearing about cool stuff in real environements, but today kicked butt.  Bill…


Mix06: I’m Here!

It’s a little after midnight on Friday night and I’ve made it to Vegas, along with several thousand other folks.  Appearantly, its a bit of a weird night here, I had to wait in line for over an hour for a taxi.  The line up was really similar to what you’d find at an amusement…


MashUp: Mix06, Origami, Hiring, Sapphire

I kind of feel like I’m ripping off /. on this, but I’ve got a lot of little things I want to post, and individually they don’t all add up to a full post, so instead, I’m going to “mix” them into one post. Mix06! This time next week, Mix06 will be coming to an…


Advertising in the DVR And New Media World

On my way home from work last night, I was listening to NPR when I heard a story about KFC’s new Buffalo Chicken Sandwich ad.  The short version is that KFC is running an ad with a very very short scene, too short to catch without some kind of DVR.  If you manage to pause…
