- Heroes Happen Here comic strip adventure
- Tom Brokaw’s speech on unsung heroes who “put their feet on the ground and their hands on the keyboard” to move us all forward. Are we collectively tomorrow’s greatest generation?
- Steve Ballmer (mostly because of who and what he represents – his speech was mildly interesting)
- The Virtual Launch Event for those who couldn’t come to LA.
- The Windows Server 2008 feature set rocks! Taking IT automation to a new level.
- Refreshing mix of about 4,000 real IT folks and system builders! I’m jaded from many events like this with a whole bunch of vendors hobnobbing amongst ourselves.
- LA sunshine and 70+ degrees in February (I live in Minnesota).
Update: photos from the event in Los Angeles:
