There’s time to kill before boarding (redeye JetBlue flight to JFK, and then on to MCO) with decent wireless in one of the newer terminals at SeaTac, so I thought I’d post something.
This is TechEd #7 for me. The early days of this blog started with posts leading up to TechEd 2004 in San Diego (Time for Me to Fly), which was #4 for me. I think this is the third time I’m going to Orlando for TechEd. Since joining Microsoft, I only missed TechEd 2002 in New Orleans. I thought I’d get there this year, but as you all know, we had to move the conference to Orlando due to concerns about flight capacity.
Orlando used to have some sentimental value for me from when I lived there back in the mid-80s, but too many Disney and TechEd trips has erased a lot of that. On one trip a few years ago, I drove by Naval Training Center Orlando to see how it had changed. I knew it was closed during the Clinton administration, but it was really weird to see it completely razed. One thing that is constant – hot & humid.
