Tomorrow I head out for the MVP Global Summit in Seattle/Redmond Washington... the event where all MVPs flock together to do some serious geeking out. This will be my second Summit, and if this one is anything like the last, I'm going to be thrilled. What's so great is seeing all your fellow MVPs in your product group (SharePoint for me obviously), and talking with folk on the product team. Taking my still & video camera, so expect some shots uploaded throughout the week (possibly) and certainly at the end of the week.
These big events are usually the only chance you get to hang with some of your far away friends. We've got a fun day of paintball setup at Ft. Lewis with a handful of us (MVP's and softies) arriving a bit early for the Summit... much fun will be had! Course, this trip is also about the work... but the best part is the networking. I'm still enjoying the relationships established at the last Summit back in Sept 2005... here we go!
For you others who are going, I'm going to be camping at the Crown Plaza... and for the post-MVP events/dinner, you'll most likely find me at Kells Irish Pub, the unofficial SharePoint & Florida MVP hub.
If you try to ping me via email/phone, I may be a bit slow to reply or respond... while I get email on my phone, there's no way I'll be able to keep up with the flow. I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I expect I'll be a bit slow on approving comments on my blog as well... sorry!
