The meetings with Microsoft continued on Friday; the agenda items included: Overview of the .Net Strategy, Windows Client Operating Systems Roadmap; Microsoft Office in the Enterprise; Microsoft Executive Discussion; Microsoft Office Live Meeting; Microsoft Research Overview and a Trip to the company store.
I made a little bit of a tactical error and stayed out too late with Wallen. We sat and talked in the bar of a Mexican food restaurant near the hotel until they threw us out. We then grabbed a six pack and headed back to the room. It was probably after 1:00 a.m. by the time I got to sleep. Although I did not fall asleep at any point during the day (I am infamous for sleeping in meetings), I was struggling at a couple points.
The trip to the Microsoft store was cool. They gave us a voucher and we could buy products at the employee discount.
Although the plane left SeaTac about 30 minutes late, we had a fairly uneventful trip back and I was home about 10:00 p.m.
