Party Party 08

About a month ago I was havening a few beers with my friend Mike Anderson and we were talking about the state of politics. After deciding that both main parties are stupid and don't get anything done we decided to start our own.

We called it the Party Party. Mike won our parties nomination for President, and he chose me to run for Vice President.

In the next few days I will be outlining our platform and what we stand for. Also I will list some of the people who are currently endorsing us in the coming election.

Mix 08

Yes I am going to Mix 08. The conference is hosted by Microsoft and held at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The dates of the conference are March 5th, 6th and 7th.

Last year I went to Mix 07 and had a lot of fun. There they released SilverLight, and had many sessions on the coming release of VS2008. I also met some PM's from microsoft, had drinks at Pure with some of the MySpace IT people, and saw the Las Vegas Pussycat Dolls.

So Mix is billed as "The Next Web Now". This year Mix is focusing on VS2008, SilverLight, MVC, Dynamic Languages, LINQ and much more.

Check out the Mix08 website, ad remember I will be blogging from the show on anything interesting that is discussed, and will try to remember to take some pictures and post those too.
