Doubling Down At Mix 07

0 comments suggest edit

You’ve been HAAA CKED will be well represented at Mix 07 this year. I thoroughly enjoyed Mix 06 last year and think 07 has the potential to be even better.

Do not worry, I’m leaving the retina scorchingorange aloha shirtat home this time.

My only disappointment with Mix 07 so far is it doesn’t have quite the clever rhyme that Mix 06 did. My wife did a cheer for me as I left for last year’s the conference.

Mix! Oh-Six! Mix! Oh-Six! Mix! Oh Six!

“Mix! Oh-Seven!” doesn’t roll off the tonque quite in the same manner. No cheers from my wife this year.

There are many people I’m looking forward to hanging out with in attendance this year. I like to think that it was me who convinced Scott Hanselman to attend this year’s Mix conference. Jon Galloway, Jeff Atwood, and Rob Conery will all be there. It may take that many to drag me away from the craps table before I lose my future son’s college tuition.

I also think Steve (Lucky 21) Maine will be there (is that right Steve?). Last year he watched as the Craps dealers rolled their eyes when I only bought $40 worth of chips (it’s all I had) at a $10 table. I then proceeded to turn that into around $300, only to lose the bulk of that at BlackJack later. No more BlackJack after Craps!

I think Adam (Is it 9 or 10?) Kinney will also be in attendance. If you are planning to be there, let me know in the comments!

If you’re a Subtext user, feel free to swing by and tell me how much Subtext is a [godawful mess run by a retarded monkey and is possibly responsible for your pet’s death|wonderful piece of sublime software that enriches your life in a way you never thought a .NET blog engine could] (or any option in between).

If you’re not a Subtext user, tell me how much you’ve heard that Subtext is a [godawful mess run by a retarded monkey and is possibly responsible for your pet’s death|wonderful piece of sublime software that enriches your life in a way you never thought a .NET blog engine could]

And if I have time left over, I may just attend a few sessions. Seriously though, I really enjoyed many of the sessions last year. Funny how much you can still learn while hung-over and sleep deprived. I kid. I kid.

    Damn weddings making it so I would have to take off way to much time to go to Mix. BTW you can never go wrong with a good Aloha shirt no matter what color it is.

    I wish you three would stop name dropping each other (Scott, Jeff and Phil). It's very sad.

    Name dropping implies that these are actually noteworthy people, and by associating myself with them, I am attempting to elevate my own status.
    But quite the contrary, I risk sullying my own name by association. They just happen to be friends and I can't just *not* mention them. Can I?
    ;)

    It isn't name-dropping if these people are your friends.. is it?

    re: name dropping.
    Yeah, and what's with you always mentioning the world renowned SubText project.
    Next you'll try to tell us you actually know Sho-Nuff.
