The June 30th meeting of St. Louis .NET User Group tried something new -- a meeting following the Open Space Technology. OST is a method of running meetings of groups of any size. Essentially, it's a self-organizing process where the attendees construct the agenda and schedule DURING the meeting itself. How can this be? There's no way this would work. Chaos I say!

TechEd 2008
So this year TechEd is divided into two weeks -- one focused on developers and one on IT Pros -- and I'm going as a representative of INETA. We'll have a spot in the community area.

Headed to DevTeach

Lots of great sessions planned and networking with fellow user group leaders and members from Canada. What a great country. Everyone I've met from up there has been incredibly nice. Monday night is the traditional Party With Palermo. That's always a great place to catch up with a lot of familiar faces at these events. I'm also looking forward to the .NET Rocks hosted panel discussion ......
