I am at the Auckland Airport now... Tech Ed New Zealand 2007 is finished for me, but if you are still there (untl the end of today), check out the .Net User Group meeting at 4pm, Milford Room, Level 4.Darryl Burling has all the details
, including contact information for the user group leader.
The session is a round table open discussion with the head of the Visual Basic team at Microsoft - Paul Yuknewicz. This top Redmond man has put an hour aside especially for the .Net user group today. You wont get an opportunity like this again so don't miss out!!

Arghhh.... There's a reason why I think built-in cameras in mobile devices shouldn't be there - look at this quality. But you will see how busy the party was:

I feel terrible. I can't speak - my voice is completely gone. But I managed to go to the Tech Fest anyway, and more importantly I even uploaded some pictures directly from the party, thanks to my Windows Mobile device and Yahoo! Go
, which comes with a built-in Flickr client.
As I blogged before, the party was based on Las Vegas, with lots of "gambling" going on, candy lane dancers walking around, and lots of drinks.
Evermore performed the main act and the crowd was crazy - even more those two guys who needed to be removed from the stage...
As usual look for the pictures in my TechEdNZ07 Flickr Set
, or look for the TechEDNZ07 tag

While here at Tech Ed I am following everything through direct face-to-face chats, e-mails - and the web. Check out Microsoft's Tech Ed Live
website for daily updates, pictures and videos.
Day one has lots of links, and you can see me talking to Darryl Burling
about the Keynote, Windows Mobile and Virtualisation sessions
, and a second video of us talking about the Tech Ed Marketplace and User Communities

This is really interesting: Yesterday's "What' new on Windows Mobile 6" session was full... But today's session "Windows Mobile 6 Security" by Steve Rilley is full. And I mean it.
There are about 300 people on this room right now, with about 30 people standing up on the sides (including myself).
Very interesting information about the new Recovery Password feature on Windows Mobile 6 when used with an Exchange Serverr 2007.
Another interesting thing: Steve asked how many people used a work supplied phone and about 95% raised their hands. Seriously. Unbelievablle.
This session shows all the interest mobility is attracting.
