For those of you who have submitted haikus, it’s finally sticker time. I’ll be mailing them out in about a week. Between now and then, please send me a physical address where I can send the sticker. Also, let me know how many you want. No reasonable request will be refused (where reasonable maxes out at about 8 or 9) You can use the email address email@example.com. For those of you who didn’t submit a haiku, well, it’s not too late. By the way, I gave away about half of the stickers away at MIX. Wow, that’s 500 stickers (but looks like approximately 1 wheelbarrow full) so I was pretty happy.
2. Video from the workshop
The good news is that the workshop was recorded. It must have been meant to be, because not all of the workshops were recorded, but (mostly by a stroke of luck) mine happened to be one of the lucky few to end up on tape. The bad news is that the first pass at encoding the video produced pretty poor audio. The good news (last one, I promise) is that it is being re-encoded and should probably be live sometime next week. Sweet!
3. Kaxaml and Silverlight 3
The latest beta of Kaxaml works with Silverlight 3 with you doing anything. That said, I’m looking to expand the support and finally bump SL support out of beta. Unfortunately, Kaxaml takes a back seat to paying gigs these days so the best way to get a new release of Kaxaml is to not hire me. Wait a minute…I mean, if you hire me then I’ll hurry and get you a new release of Kaxaml. I’ll even customize the colors for you.
Realistically, I’m hoping to get a new version out the door in the next few weeks. If you have features or bug fixes that you really care about, now is a good time to let me know. You can send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Great conference, see you at others
Well, once again, great conference Microsoft. Looking back, I think it’s my favorite MIX yet and I’ve been to all four! It even beat MIX06 (which has a special place in my heart since it was, well, the first one). I have budget for one or two more conferences this year. One will probably be the PDC. Does anybody have suggestions on the other? I’m currently debating between FITC (Toronto) and Web 2.0 Expo (New York). Hope to see you there!
