Tech-Ed Take 2

Last week, I was in Orlando for Tech-Ed. So why am I flying back to Florida today? To go to Tech-Ed! You see, this year Microsoft split Tech-Ed into two weeks. Last week focused on developers, and because my company also runs Visual Studio Magazine, Redmond Developer News and ADTmag.com -- besides Redmond magazine -- I had to be there.

Last week was the last time (we believe) that Bill Gates will give a keynote presentation to developers. Having followed the man for some years, I somehow suspect that Bill will miss running Microsoft and will emerge in years to come with a far-less-than-retired role.

This week, Tech-Ed focuses on IT, and the next four issues of this newsletter will have a distinct Tech-Ed slant. So if you can't be sweltering in Disney, you can stay up to speed through Redmond Report.
