Lots of blogs are pushing registration opening for what some call “the most talked about conference of last year.” If I had a magic wand I’d to go to Mix06 next month. Never heard of it? Says Virtual Earth blog:
There’s been a lot of talk about the session featuring Bill Gates and Tim O’Reilly, but I think I’m most interested in Scott Isaacs talk from the trenches on building the Live.com framework.
It’s a Microsoft event, but frankly seems to address many of issues we in the mapping world face:
How can I extend my content and services into the living room?
How can I protect my users from phishers and pharmers?
How can I develop and debug AJAX applications quickly and efficiently?
How can I effectively monetize RSS?
Oh, we might swap “into the living room” with “into the board room” or “into the enterprise” but essentailly we are all looking to do more with services and figure out how to make money.
