I’m currently weighing up whether I should attend Mix06 — out of my own pocket.
I’m already attending O’Reilly ETech a few weeks beforehand, courtesy of work. Although Mix06 is pretty much on-topic with what I’m doing for the BBC, it feels too cheeky to ask to be funded for it.
At that point I would normally lump it, but it also looks like the first real introduction to some of the RSS/OPML platform integration into Vista — and that is interesting.
I’d normally shy away from attending vendor-specific conferences, but obviously anything involving Vista is going to be significant as no doubt it will be adopted by the consumer-base fairly rapidly.
With the added advantage of getting an insight into Vista, I’m trying to weigh up whether it’s worth shelling out about £1500 of my own money for the two days.
If you’ve decided to go — or decided not to go — I’d be interested in your thoughts. 🙂
