Ready To Mix It Up

0 comments suggest edit

Mix 06 Well I am ready to mix it up at the Mix 06 conference. This will be my first conference of the year and my coworker Jon Galloway will also be in attendance.

I do have one big concern. The conference is in Las Vegas. This is like a kid sitting in a class lecture held in a candy store. I have already registered, so at least there’s no risk of me trying to double my registration fees at the craps table.

While there I will see if I can pencil in BillG for a conversation about supporting web standards with the next generation of Microsoft tools for the web.

Anybody have any inexpensive hotel recommendations?

    I have a couple hotel recommendations. You want the hourly rate or the daily rate? ;)

    Joe, now you're scaring me. ;) Actually, we registered for the Venetian. Might as well stay where all the action is.

    A couple of Telligenti's will be there (Rob H and Scott W that I know of); I'm so friggin' jealous! Will you be blogging the conference?



    The Venetian is nice, but I thought you said cheap?

    I changed my mind. I think being in the middle of the action is worth something. Besides, if my company complains about the cost, I'll split it. ;)



    I will try to blog it, but I'm not sure casinos will let me bring the tablet to the craps table.

    Check out travelpost.com to find cheap hotels. And bring your lice repellent if you pay under $40 a night. My fav is the Rio- if you PriceLine a 3.5 star hotel in Vegas there's a good chance you'll end up at the Rio.

    Ahh so now the truth comes out as to why you guys are really going (as if I didn't already know this). Poker, craps, blackjack...oh wait, there happens to be an MS conference going on as well? Wow, we should TOTALLY check that out? Yeah sure, just one more hand and we'll do that ;-).
