Richard and I attended the event Developing Software for the future Microsoft Platform, where we saw Chris Anderson & Don Box’s Lap Around Longhorn, it was very entertaining. A series of very interesting demonstrations of WinFS showed how powerful a file system could be. Bill Gates gave the closing session, which provided an interesting insight into the industry.
This was followed by the London Bloggers dinner at Masala Zone with Chris An & Don Box. However, we had to leave early – to catch our train back to the frozen north – not as a reflection on the food & company, which were both excellent.
