Yes, it is unfortunately true

I have unfortunately been prevented from speaking at TechEd in New Zealand, Australia, and Japan; the final events I was planning to speak at before I leave Microsoft on September 1. I cannot express how terrible I feel about this. The hope was that these events were supposed to be an opportunity to celebrate the past and the future before I move on. The only thing I can say is that I hope to see everyone at some other event in the future.

    Jesper has blogged that he won’t be coming to Tech Ed in New Zealand, Australia or Japan this year. …

    Speaking as someone who was looking forward to seeing you present at TechEd NZ, I can only say "Bugger!".

    A real shame; was so looking forward to seeing your last talk at TechEd NZ

    Re your planned presentations at TechEd NZ (and, I guess the other two as well), will the sessions be cancelled completely or will other people be running through your Powerpoint presentations?

    That is seriously bad news!  I reiterate Dan’s "bugger"!

    You should speak at Sinergija 06 (Novi Sad, Serbia, Oct 9-11), too.

    I was sorry to hear you wouldn’t be making it to Oz – you’re definitely missed. Kai’s great, but he isn’t Jesper…
