Dear Video Diary, Another busy day.  I was pleased to be a part of the TechNet Springboard Series panel discussion on Vista Deployment.  We had some tough-but-fair questions around Vista thrown our way, and it was fun!  After that I did one video interview as well.  I had another scheduled for the afternoon, but the… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd Video Diaries – Part 3 – June 11, 2008

Dear Video Diary, This was a busy day.  I was originally scheduled to do three video interviews.  It turned into 4, and then 5!  So I spent a lot of time in a comfy chair, with a not-so-comfy microphone attached to my head.  Really enjoyed the conversations, though.  I hope you take a moment to… Read more

Those of you who have followed my blog for more than 12 months already know what a HUGE FAN I am of the TechEd conference.  Since it began in 1993, I have only missed three TechEds.  And during my 4+ years as a Microsoft employee, it’s been a real treat to work at TechEd as… Read more

TechEd 2008 Breaking News: Big changes to TechEd U.S.

Big news: They’re splitting it up. “Huh?  What do you mean?  Are they having one conference for boys, and another for girls?” <sigh>  Don’t be silly.  And anyway, that (unfortunately) would be extremely lopsided.  No, I’m talking about now having two separate weeks – one for Developers and the other for IT Professionals. And that’s… Read more
