Experiencing MVP Summit 2008

I finally made it to Seattle, Wa this morning for Microsoft's MVP Summit, and I must say that Microsoft knows how to host an event. Everything has been first class. I have met a bunch of really nice fellow MVPs and finally Mark Clagett, our MVP Lead for Connected Systems...I have never felt so much at home.

While adjusting to the time change this morning of about a 3 hour difference, I went ahead and made my schedule for today based on some open slots that we could choose from on certain topics of interest. One of the sessions I attended was open panel and invoked such a discussion that they decided to repeat it into the next hour of sessions. Little did I know I was going to be asked to facilitate the topics and run the 1 1/2 hour session...What an honor but also quite nerve racking since it was "spur of the moment" and I was speaking with fellow MVPs. After the session was over, I found out a Microsoft employee was tucked in the corner during the session, when he introduced himself and congratulated me on doing a good job. This was very rewarding!
