I posted an update to http://blog.retrosight.com/GeekDinnerWithEdBottOnTuesdaySeptember252007.aspx.

We are going to eat at Zeeks Pizza in downtown Kirkland. Excellent pizza but if it's not your thing there are many other choices within walking distance where you could pick up a 'to go' order and join us at Zeeks -- see here for a list. Zeeks stays open unitl 10 PM and there are several coffee shops / pubs close by where we can move the conversation if folks are still around.

Ed and I hope you can join us.

When: Tuesday, September 25, 2007 starting at 7:00 PM.

Where: Zeeks Pizza, Kirkland

I'll be happy to organize and host Scott. :-)

It's been a while since we've had one of these -- the last time I brought some Windows Media Center giveaways (tuners, remote controls, etc.) so I'll do it again. One of the recipients of a tuner later joined Microsoft (Tyler Welch). You never know what I might have in my bag of goodies.

Where: Crossroads Mall (http://www.crossroadsbellevue.com/) located at 15600 NE 8th Street, Bellevue, WA 98008. Specifically, the location is in the Public Market Eatieries at the tables and chairs between Papazzi Pizzeria, 39 Kaiten Sushi and O'Char Thai -- find a floor map here.

When: September 12, 2007 from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Pass the word along...!

I'm in New York next Wednesday (11/16) late afternoon through midday Saturday (11/19).

Anyone want to get together one of those two days to chat...?

Looking for a great tour guide for Saturday morning. :-)

They keynote is absolutely going to rock this morning.  There is an *hilarious* video that most everyone in the audience will relate to their teen years.  There are more fantastic demos in this keynote than in years prior with a bunch of serious eye candy developers and designers will love.

Andrew and I will be hanging out in the track lounge after the keynote and this afternoon.  Don't forget to come and ask us a great question to win a Media Center keyboard.

Later on this evening, Sean, Andrew and I will be hosting Geek Drinks (Andrew is buying the first round -- we will see if we can talk him into subsequent rounds.)  Details are on Sean's blog post Update on Geek Dinner (er...drinks!)

Don't know who Jeff Sandquist is...?  Among many other things he is Robert Scobles' boss (do any of us envy him this role????????).  Jeff is also largely responsible for Newsgator Media Center Edition (which you can access from the Online Spotlight feature of Windows XP Media Center Edition).  Jeff introduced me to Greg Reinacker and convinced me Newsgator was worthy of our time and effort.  I hadn't heard of Newsgator at the time, had only recently been introduced to 'the blogosphere' and my cup (actually more of a bucket) was already running over working on some (fairly big name) partners at the time for the launch event.

I'm glad I paused and listened to Jeff and we chose to work with Newsgator.  As a result, I now enjoy all Channel9 videos (and a good bit of other *casting content) from the comfort of my couch.

Anywho, Jeff is putting together a blogger meetup.  I'll be there, Jeff -- and I'll try to bring a few others along with me.

Los Angeles: Tuesday, April 5

Washington, DC: Thursday, April 7 or Friday April 8

Leave comments here if you want to get together...
