It’s less than a week to go before I board a plane for Las Vegas (Viva) and MIX08 – “an intimate opportunity for cutting-edge technical, creative and business strategists to engage Microsoft in a conversation about the future of the web”. I’m going only because the kind folks at Microsoft SA arranged to drag a blogger around with them, and to be honest I’m really, really getting excited about it.

I gather the conference is sold out and have already picked up via Twitter and Facebook that some pretty awesome people will be there. I’m looking forward to meeting Hugh MacLeod, (hopefully) Guy Kawasaki and I’m sure a bunch of other social geeks at the MIX08 BlogZone (which will be kitted out complete with XBox 360’s – how the hell do they expect me to do any work at this thing?)

Quite frankly the toughest part of this conference appears to be deciding what to do, when. Watch this space and (believe it or not) my Twitter account for updates and details.
