A Funny Thing Happend at PDC

PDC this year was a blast. Some great technology (more of which in later blog posts) and a lot of fun. On particularly amusing incident occured on the Monday, I was attending a Regional Director side meeting, with around 50 RDs from around the world, being briefed on a variety of things by key MS folks. A very useful day, but I digress.

Anyway - at one of the late morning breaks, who should show up, but Miguel de Icazza, the guy behind Mono, and now a Novell Vice President. He was handing out leaflets for his Mono off-PDC session. He had offered a Birds of a Feather session, but it had rejected. So there he was, handing out Mono stuff to the RDs - perhaps MS's best independent supporters and advocates! You had to admire his cheek. But it was done with a great sense of humour.

A litte bit later, the RDs assembled for the traditional group mug shot - Miguel tried to blag his way into the photo. And he nearly got away with it. The pictures tell the rest of the story. I take my hat off to the guy!
