Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me in New York, I thought I would set sail for the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Upon arrival, along with my expedition companions Art Department Val and MSDN Steve, we dropped anchor in the far reaches of Parking Lot B West.
Fast forward to present day. We have survived the epic trek from Parking Lot B West to the North/South concourse, and I have rejoined civilization. It was an arduous adventure, filled with adversity and strife. The climate was harsh, and resources were scarce, but the innate desire to learn, network, and party has prevailed, and we have arrived! And it was just in time to give away our first free Zune from the TechNet & MSDN Magazine booth!
More giveaways, pictures, and stories to come as the week continues. Be sure to follow along here on our blog, and at http://www.virtualteched.com!
PS - A Note to the TechEd Team: Please provide extra Sherpas in Parking Lot B West next year.
