Off to Los Angeles
In about an hour I’ll board my flight to LA, which will be my first on Virgin America airlines. I’m heading down a day or two early to visit my younger sister and enjoy a bit of warm sun before the conference kicks off on Monday. From what I hear, there should be some pretty exciting stuff happening on Monday beginning with Ray Ozzie’s keynote address.
Of course, what’s most exciting to me is that on Tuesday we’ll begin talking about all of the work my team and I have been doing for nearly two years now (has it really been that long?!?). My friend and colleague David Washington, platform PM for the Find & Organize team, will be presenting our session on Tuesday afternoon. It’s the one titled “Windows 7: New APIs to Find, Visualize, and Organize.” Apparently it was a bit of a challenge to come up with an interesting title that didn’t spoil the fun of our announcements. At any rate, if you’re at all interested in Windows Explorer or Search – you won’t want to miss it 🙂
I’ll be there to help answer questions after the session, to assist with our hands-on labs, to hear everything you have to say about the work we’ve done and what we can do to make sure Windows 7 is a compelling offering for you and your customers / users.
Oh yeah, and one more thing for those of you following along at home. On Thursday, David and I were interviewed by Dan Fernandez for my very first Channel 9 video. I expect it’s the first of many, and I think you’ll enjoy it when it’s made available in just a few days.
