Rather than try to describe it, here’s a quick video diary for you…
“Did you get to sing, Kevin?”
Nope. Line of performers waiting to go on stage was long, and supposedly there was a signup sheet that I never got close to. But I won an XBOX 360.
“Huh?! You did?! You can’t do that. Isn’t that a conflict if you work for Microsoft and win a prize at TechEd?”
Don’t worry – I didn’t keep it. But the lucky guy I was chatting with (sorry, friend, I’ve forgotten your name) standing next to me in line for the stage at the time sure seemed pleased when I quickly handed him the winning ticket and said “You won! Get up there!”
