Thank you all for so many years of awesome. Microsoft and Channel 9 has blessed my family and I in so many ways. I've learned so many things from both the community here and Microsoft.
Take care and keep in touch.

Remember the post, where we announced Build 2012?
BUILD 2012 will be on the Microsoft campus, and I know what you're thinking ... if it's not in some cavernous convention hall, then it must be a dialed-down version of last year's event, etc. ... but don't be confused: this will be unlike anything we've held on our corporate campus in a long time. More details to come .
Now you know what we meant by this. It will be a great event here and also on Channel 9.
Fun times... The team is working like crazy and can't wait to see you all.
I am at a loss for words. In the weeks leading up to the launch of Channel 9 we did not know precisely what our content would be. We were working late, getting the site ready to go live and Bryn Waibel, one of our original developers came running down the hall saying, "there is only one space after a period!". "This is it, this is our content".
I thought he had lost his mind, but he went on to say how you have to see this video from Bill Hill and how he goes on to say how Windows is not the most important OS, not Linux, nor the Macintosh. We went to Bryn's office watched classic Bill Hill on Bryn's machine and we then knew what we'd show. Those videos became some of our first content and drove us to where we are today.
Thank you Bill. Bless your soul and thank you for your time with us here.
We are indebted to you. Heavy hearts to Bill's family.
Lots of great new stuff and plenty of representation from folks you've seen on Channel 9 before including many folks from my team in the final 20 minutes.
See you all tomorrow.
I'll second the request to get the downloads available ASAP. Keynotes especially. I had planned to finish work early to watch them live, but sadly that isn't going to happen.
I'll be happy if I can stream it from the beginning a few hours after the keynote is finished.
You got it. The plan is within 24 hours to have a streaming version *and* downloadable versions too. You should start seeing the breakout sessions tomorrow morning (9:00 am PST) and the keynote later today.
Keynotes will be streamed live at http://live.visitmix.com
Be sure to tune in on day 2 where some members of channel 9 team will have a significant role in the final 20 minutes of the keynote.
All keynotes and breakouts will be available here on channel 9 in the events area within about 24 hours.
