Firefox made an appearance at Microsoft's Gamefest
Knowing that we poor geeks without laptops, pdas, cell phones or other internet browsing gadgets would wither and die if we didn't have the opportunity to read all the latest posts from GeeksWithBlogs during GameFest, Microsoft was very considerate and provided some internet stations to preserve our mental well-being and hook us back up to the system. My first day there, I walked up to the terminal and laughed when I double-clicked the Internet Explorer icon. Man, it had been a while since I'd opened ......

I met E. Gauger at Microsoft Gamefest
Yep, that's my first bit of non-swag Gamefest news I want to share. I know it's not very technical, but she was the closest thing I met to a celebrity there so that elevated the coolness of it. Just who exactly is E.Gauger you ask? And I ask you, you mean you don't read Kotaku yet consider yourself a geek? Shame on you.

Microsoft Gamefest 2006
Well, I'm back from Microsoft Gamefest and WOW! I'm still trying to digest all of the events and information that happened there. I have a LOT of typing to do over the next couple of weeks.

From my own standpoint, the conference could be summed up a little like this: Microsoft: You big game development companies suck. Everyone: *gasp*Microsoft: You guys don't take risks anymore, you don't innovate and ......

Microsoft Gamefest: You have to be kidding me
Do you recognize that image? I just got it in an email updating me with the latest itinerary! Yep, if you haven't guessed it yet I'll hit you over the head with it. In a very amazing turn of events which I can't share here ([off the record] I will say that Bill Gates is a tiger in the sack ;) [/off the record]), I'M GOING TO MICROSOFT GAMEFEST! Is there anyone else from the GWB community attending? Anyone that has attended in the past that can offer up some tips and advice for the conference? Anyone ......
