Geeks With Blogs
Stan Spotts blog

After the wonderful scrambled egg breakfast, we walked down the hall to the keynote. Bob Muglia will be presenting, so it should be interesting as Bob does a nice job. Wireless access is weak in Hall D, where the keynote is.

We survived the party with Polermo last night, which was a blast. Met up with Miguel Castro, Don Demsak, Joe Healy, Russ Faustino, and a slew of other notables. A few dozen of us wandered down to Hooters afterwards and eventually more wandered in, 'til we had the place completely geeked out. Naked 911 wings and a pitcher, what a way to end the day.

The "Back to the Future" parody was pretty funny, showing Microsoft picking on itself for all the "visions" throughout the years… Hailstorm, integrated storage, Microsoft Bob, Clippy, finally deciding that the keynote should be about real-world stuff. Complete with Delorean and Doc…

Dynamic IT for the People-Ready Business is Bob's presentation title. Much about DSI, with a fair overview of what makes up business agility by Gartner.

Some demos of System Center, teasers with SQL Server 2008 and IIS 7.0, Silverlight,

Not one of the best Tech-Ed keynotes, but some of the virtualization demos were eye-opening.
