Missed Buzz at WPC

July 14th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Apparently, Buzz Bruggeman was at the Microsoft WPC in Boston, blogging away, and I missed him again.  I am in danger of becoming the last person on earth he has not met.  Anyway, he has good posts about the event, including one about the presentation by Andy Lees I attended.

Not surprisingly, he liked the “Structured Networking” part of the show.  This is one of my favorite aspects as well, and one of the key reasons I attended this year — while learning where Microsoft is going is important, making new partner-to-partner connections is gold.  While there are minor kinks in the Structured Networking Web site, the value delivered by providing a convenient way to meet dozens of potential partners in three days is tremendous.

    Hey John:

    I have another day’s worth of notes to transcribe and blog. I thought it was an excellent event. Lots of energy, lots of highly motivated people.

    I am going to be at the AlwaysOn deal at Stanford in about ten days. Let me know if you have time to meet up for coffee?
