Geekzone '06 & Microsoft Vista installfest NZ '06

I was part of Geekzone '06 and I take my hat off to Mauricio for bringing together such a great group of presenters... very diverse indeed, very topical, very practical.

Geekzone '07 will be the bomb!  My view is that these sorts of "treats" are for those in the Geekzone community that make Geekzone a success... by being a member, being active in forums, by having a Geekzone blog, by posting feedback and comments, and doing technology reviews and other content for the site. 

So if you aren't active on Geekzone, get on to it... and make sure you'll be ready for next year's session.

Also, as Mauricio has mentioned on his blog http://www.geekzone.co.nz/freitasm/1342, getting some early adoption going on for Vista by Microsoft here in NZ would be a good thing.  I have a TabletPC with XP SP2 on it that I would use as a guinea pig for Vista RC's / upgrades - especially if by doing so I got a free copy of Vista when it gets released...

I've been working on a web venture idea for the last year or so, so have now resigned from my job to go at it full-time.

Here's how I go, with business and technology challenges!!
