Mix 08 (Arriving)

Posted on: March 6, 2008

There’s something nice about walking through the great check in hall at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, stepping up to the Invited Guests desk, showing your passport and here the person on the other side saying ‘Welcome back, Mr. J’. We’ve been expecting you.

Not that I’m such a regular visitor to neither Vegas nor the Venetian in particular, but since this is my third time at Mix, I assume their database records of previous guests picked me up. Nice conference start…

Actually the conference doesn’t start until tomorrow, but I had some appointments set up for the day before the event so i decided to come here a bit early. Every year at Mix, the people attending by invitation from Microsoft Japan gets together for a Japanese group dinner sort of thing. A relaxed little social gathering where the usual suspects gather to catch up on what’s happening in .Net development in Japan. I was very happy to see that this year the group had grown, meaning hopefully that the number of devs working with .Net (in particular 3.0/3.5) and Silverlight is growing too.

Other things worth noting, I did get a chance to discuss blue hair and table saws with Adam, age with Laurence and social experiments with Gilber.

Looking forward to tomorrow. :)

I can’t help but to recall the scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, where Hunter arrives at the police convention… :-)


Peter: hihi

さち:うん無事についた :) 今回の飛行機はひどかったけど。ロスまでは大丈夫だったけど、そこからはすごくゆれた :)
