Late night here in Vegas and Im totally trying to get work done getting ready to deliver our Nerd+Art talk tomorrow. Listening to NIN Ghosts I-IV. Pretty sweet… Add this to Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” because I wanted to support an artist who is testing the waters with direct distribution. (It’s ironic that Im excited about this announcement of not so direct distribution)
Anywho… its been an amazing day at Mix. The Guy Kawasaki interview with Steve Ballmer was fantastic. Totally gave me a new respect for Steve. I love competition and somebody who is passionate about changing the world and giving other people the same opportunity.
IdentityMine hosted another industry influentials dinner at Zeferino tonight and it was amazing. Definitely the place to be. I met some new faces like Jeremiah Morrill who won the Flotzam contest. Very cool website that I will be adding to my blogroll. Got to visit with Than, Rob Relyea, Karsten, Laurent, Grant, Nick, Dr. WPF (you had to be there to figure out who he is… my lips are sealed… hint the mustache is a dead giveaway). We also had some great appearances by Scott, Brad and Miwa among many many others.
Any conversation that ends debating whether designers should be allowed to create dependency properties and routed events is a good conversation in my book.
