MIX08: Day One

This year, Microsoft handed out purses to all attendees, made out of the finest white tarpaulin. To complete the look, white (or green or black) berets were available, for anyone that wanted to rock the Jamie Hyneman look. No matching shoes yet, though.

No expense has been spared, as Microsoft has made a full 11Mb/s 802.11b Internet connection available to anyone directly within the conference rooms. Internet access from within the hotel rooms can be had for only $10/day.

Last night, we attended a Microsoft screening of The King of Kong (2007), and tonight the subject of the movie will try to break the current Donkey Kong high score.
