Heading to Mix08 and Tweeting along the way

image In the morning I'm heading to Mix. I'm going to be using Twitter as a microblog during my time at Mix. I'll post where I am and what I'm up to. You can sign up and "follow" me on Twitter, and select optional notifications via SMS or IM.

Scott Watermasysk has a great post called "Why Twitter" and I've been "tweeting" more and more of late. It's a great way to communicate, kind of like IRC except with permalinks and angle brackets. ;) Twitter is a lot more casual and there's a lot more off-the-cuff random discussions.

ScottWater has also setup a series of Hashtags such that any "tweets" on Twitter that include "#mix" "#mix08" in them will show up on this realtime feed. This is a great way to keep up on the hour by hour Mixiness that'll be going on, whether you're at the conference or not.

Also, if you haven't done your Mix Schedule, check out this ClickOnce WPF app that does Mix Scheduling. I'll be speaking on ASP.NET MVC on Thursday at 4:15 in Lando 4201 and Phil Haack and I will be hosting a Q&A in the Mix Open Spaces area immediately following.

I'll be looking to do a number of technical podcasts while in Vegas so if there's certain cool or obscure (or both) questions you want answered, leave them here and I'll try to chase them down. There's also a Mix category on my blog so posts while I'm there will be tagged as well.

See you in Vegas. Man, I hate this town.

The best laughs are spontaneous... I added your Twitter RSS to a desktop reader for the week. Before realizing how ridiculas it sounds, I titled it Hanselman Tweets. I smile every time I look over.

When do you expect in the next few days to launch next preview of ASP.NET MVC Framework?

P.S. I am looking forward to see recording of your session on MIX.

What don't you like about Vegas? I have my own reservations, just curious, what are yours? Looking forward to see recording of your session on MIX!
