TechEd '06 Day 3
Sunday is when the keynotes are taking place. This is a switch from last year and I think a good decision. The reasoning behind it is to allow for more session times.

This will be a different TechEd for me this year. I will be in attendance as a Microsoft employee. Looking from a different side of the fence this time. It should be cool.
