Off to Spring Connections and an interesting video


This video posted on the Seattle Pi site is an interesting walk down through memory lane as it wanders from the introduction of products such as Word to Exchange to SharePoint Portal Server to today’s fascination about all things to do with the cloud. Of course, it’s a marketing video, but even so, it’s interesting to see how you can take all the products and stitch them together into a story that makes sense. After watching it, there’s no way that you could be left in any doubt that some seer at Microsoft was guiding the whole thing from development on 3.5 inch floppy disks to CD to DVD to the cloud. It all makes sense now…

With that thought, I shall head off to Spring Connections 2011 in Orlando and see those of you who plan to attend there. I’m speaking at 8am on Tuesday next, March 29 in the Tuscany D+E rooms at the JW Marriott Resort. Apart from this keynote, be sure to attend Mark Minasi’s whimsically titled keynote “Cloud Computing: A (Lapsed) Economist’s View” at 8am on Monday.

Other well-known speakers about topics related to Exchange include Jim McBee, Michael B. Smith, Kevin Laahs, Kieran McCorry, and Mike Crowley. Should be a good event!

Now off to the airport…
