I took an hour out of my day to walk around Techfest today...it's an internal Microsoft event with all the latest and greatest ideas Microsoft Research comes up with every year. I know there's lots of press coverage of this but remember - the public stuff you've seen represents about 25% of what's actually there! This thing really acts as a pick-me-up for me...there's just such amazing stuff there and a lot of the stuff is of the 'aha' type...where you've seen all the public information around but never really got why it was such a big deal...it will be!

Anyway, stopping before I break the vast numbers of 'don't talk about this' posters that were everywhere...so tempting!
