Microsoft Tech.ED 2006 Australia

I was invited to visit the exhibition of Microsoft Tech.ED 2006 Australia held at Darling Harbour, Sydney this afternoon. It was a good chance for me to learn more about the local IT market in Australia.

At the Visual Studio booth at the exhibition, I eventually met the Australian MVP lead, Roseanne Stamell, who kindly arranged everything of my visit to the event. She also introduced me to other MVPs when we walked around the exhibition.

I also joined the Tech.ED party tonight, a crazy party at Homebar, the world famous nightclub opposite the Sydney Exhibition Centre at where the Tech.ED conference hosted.

At the gaming zone, I tried one Xbox 360 game, FIFA 06 - Road to FIFA World Cup. It was fantastic and incredible. I was especially impressed by its detailed pictures, including facial expressions, puckers and hand gestures. But, after enjoying the exciting Xbox game, I lost my favorite mobile phone, Nokia 6310i, which had been with me for 5 years. :-(
