Countdown to Microsoft BI Conference

The project scheduling fates have smiled upon me and I will be attending the 2nd Annual Microsoft Business Intelligence Conference, October 6-8 in Seattle, WA. As I will not be presenting, this is the first conference in years, that I will be attending as a pure attendee. If anyone out there is attending or if you have any tips for visitors to the Seattle area, please let me know.

Caffeine and WiFi, Wooo hooo

Thanks to Starbucks and AT&T, you can trade a little personal information for free wifi nearly anywhere on the planet. Get a Starbucks Card, use it once a month, and get 2-hours of free wifi Internet access from AT&T.

Knowing my profession, personal coffee habits, and the amount of travel I do, getting into a Starbucks to use the card is not going to be a problem. Second, with a location within walking distance of every point on the globe, we are one step closer to universal Internet access.
