First day in Seattle

2008/04/14

I arrived Sunday in Seattle from St. Louis for the MVP Global Summit. The shuttle from the airport was filled with other MVPs on the way to hotels as well. I met Rachel Appel, an ASP.Net MVP, on the shuttle and we immediately became friends. After getting settled in our rooms we went out for a bite to eat and registered for the conference. Later on, we met up with several other MVPs, including Steve Jones, Andy Kelly and Peter Ward, fellow PASS friends, for dinner and drinks. I now see why this is the "Global" Summit, Americans were in the miniority all evening.

We managed to stay out pretty late, frequently figuring out what time it would be at home. The conference actually begins at 11:30 this morning, so I plan to take a walk down to the pier knowing that it will probably be the last chance I get. I am very excited to find out that a party at the Experience Music Project is planned for one night this week. This is my third conference in Seattle, having been here for PASS twice in the past, and it is always fun. 

I am excited about all the sessions I will be attending and meeting more MVPs. Knowing how busy this week will be, I am not sure that I will have time to post something every day, but I will post something when I can.
