We landed in Boston around noon after a nice 2 hour flight from Chicago.  The bad part about of this trip is that we left Des Moines at 7 AM…yeah, not fun.  Once I got the convention center, I had the pleasure of meeting Carl Franklin.  I must say it was pretty awesome!  I’m a huge fan of .NET Rocks! so it was nice to meet the man in person.  After that, I was off to an MVP event at the Westin Copley Plaza where I got to hang out with Kent Tegels and the various MVP leads.  The coolest part about the event was our table discussion about developer envagelism with Clemens Vasters.  Pretty cool, I must say.

After that, it was just walking around talking with other MVPs and kill some time before the keynote.  The keynote was pretty informational.  I really enjoyed Ray Ozzie’s Service Disruption presentation.  It’s nice to remember the “crests” that made the industry what it is today.  Beyond that, the keynote has demos for the new products they plan on shipping this year.

For dinner, we met up with the 2Rivers guys and headed out to the Barking Crab for some really good seafood.  By 11 PM, I was ready to die…man, was I tired.  It’s a good thing I had 4+ Diet Pepsis to keep me from passing out.
