Where I’ll Be In 2009

Riding the cyclone, Pecos style!

2009 quickly turned into a whirlwind, and in the pit of my stomach I feel like a cowboy who’s just about to hop on and try to ride that cyclone. Here’s a quick rundown with relevant links to all the talks, places, and conferences currently on my schedule.


14 – Webcast: Using System Center Essentials with Essential Business Server

20 – IT Pro Tiki Hut Tour, Huntsville AL (click to register)

26 thru 28 – IT Alliance, Atlanta GA (tentative)


1–3 – SMB Nation East (tentative)

11 thru 15 – Tech-Ed North America 2009, Los Angeles CA (tentative)

15 thru 17 – SMB Summit, Dallas TX (OFFICIALLY POSTPONED)


13 thru 16 – Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, New Orleans LA (click to register)


2 thru 4 – SMB Nation, Las Vegas NV (tentative)

You know what really rocks tho? A new service call TripIt. Besides helping me track all my travel info in one super easy-to-use spot, TripIt also shows me which of the people I’m linked to will be nearby at the same time. Social networking for travel, which rocks! If nothing else, it helps cut down immensely on all the “You gonna be there? I dunno, YOU gonna be there?” back-and-forth that typically happens in the back channel around events.

You can sign up for TripIt at If you want to add me as a TripIt contact after you join, jump here:

  1. Chris – hope the Vegas trip comes together for you. It’s warmer and dryer in Seattle in October! And as you know – you are welcome to overschedule yourself with a quick trip to NY in a few weeks for the spring show.
