Just a quick update that I'm in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada this week for Mix09 (as I'm sure are a number of bloggers on GWB).   Amazingly, this is my first trip to Vegas and I arrived early yesterday to meet up with some colleagues and check out some of the strip.   The conference is at the Venetian on the strip and my suite is fabulous and HUGE!  Cant say I've ever stayed in a larger room (other than at home).  Plus, I can't say I've ever seen anything quite like a big resort like the Venetian.   From what I've seen so far, this whole town is bigger and wilder than I imagined and they tell me it's not nearly what it usually is due to the current economy.

So what's going on today you ask?  Well Scott Guthrie and Bill Buxton are about to take the stage for the first keynote and then we're off to the races for the day one sessions.  Tonight is the private attendee party at the Tao (http://www.taolasvegas.com/tao.html)  which should be a blast.  I'm also fortunate enough to be here as a guest of Clint Edmonson (http://www.notsotrivial.net)who is a Microsoft Architect Evangelist in the Midwest so we'll be hitting some Microsoft parties and happy hours.

For those of you who aren't able to be here to witness the excess that is Las Vegas you can check out all the content (including the keynote I'm sitting in now) at the following link: http://2009.visitmix.com.   All session content will be posted within 24 hours.

As for me, I've got a whole agenda lined up over the next three days and I'll be uploading any new content, ideas, or revelations that I run across.  I'm sure I'll also share some stories about Vegas itself.....well, some stuff might not make the blog, but the PG-13 stories will find there way here.  More to come...

We all hate you G! Kidding man, hope you're having fun. Vegas is awesome. My wife and I went there on our honeymoon in 2004. It is as you describe; larger than life. The Venetian was great. You and Clint need to take a gondola ride and let the Italian guys sing to you!
