Microsoft MVP Logo

    <p>I&#8217;ve been quite impressed with the MVP Global Summit &amp; the Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond area.&nbsp; It&#8217;s been a blast meeting and hanging out with everyone (not to mention the content!... seriously... I'm not mentioning the content of the Summit).&nbsp; Some nights have turned into be quite rough (like last night), but I wouldn&#8217;t trade it for the world.&nbsp; I&#8217;m uploading many of my pictures up to <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewconnell">my Flickr account</a>, all <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/95537032@N00/sets/1047907/">grouped in a single group</a>, and will continue to upload them.&nbsp;You can also check out the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/mvp05/clusters/">mvp05</a> Flickr tag.</p>
    <p>On Wednesday night I headed over to Quest Field where we had the Americas Regional Dinner. While there, I met up with some peeps from Florida: <a href="http://www.vbnetexpert.com/">Stan Shultez</a> &amp; <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/rfustino/default.aspx">Russ Fustino</a> (<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/95537032@N00/48139519/in/set-1047907/">who got a nice surprise @ dinner</a>). For those in Jax, I got the <a href="http://codecamp.jaxdug.com/">Code Camp</a> video that Russ has been working on which I'll get to <a href="http://cs.jaxdug.com/blogs/dennisbottjer/">Dennis</a> to post to the <a href="http://www.jaxdug.com/">JAXDUG</a> site when I return to Jacksonville next week.</p>
    <p>Last night we had a dinner at Building 36 in the cafe where I got to meet more <a title="" href="http://www.microsoft.com/office/sharepoint/prodinfo/overview.mspx" target="_blank">SharePoint</a> MVPs as well as <a href="http://blogs.msdn.com/mikefitz/default.aspx">Fitz</a>, Julie Larson-Green (<a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/AndrewConnell?m=384">who I got to personally</a> tell "your video rocks!") and Stephen Cummins, and experience another Scoble sighting.&nbsp; Afterwards a few of us hit a pool hall in Kirkland (thanks for shuttling us around *again* Todd)... and <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/95537032@N00/48139439/in/set-1047907/">I just had to get my picture taken with Robert Scoble</a>.</p>
    <p>I singled out a few the other day, but there are a few more to single out.&nbsp; <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/anguslogan/">Angus</a>, <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/arnonel/">Arno</a>,&nbsp;and <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/bsimser/sets/1037218/">Bil</a> are also posting their pictures.</p>
