    Does anyone  now where I can find a list of Hotels near the campus?, I need an estimate of how much it will be (Hotel + Food + Transportation) so the All Mighty HR department can decide if I can go.

    There's a link to the Washington State Tourism site on the LOCATION page

    "Microsoft palm-sized slates to rival iPad available by Christmas", according to Ballmer. 
     

    "You'll see new slates with Windows on them. You'll see them this Christmas,"
    he told an audience of students, staff and journalists at the London School of
    Economics.

    "Certainly we have done work around the tablet as both a productivity device
    and a consumption device," he said.

    Wonder if we will get to see something at the PDC, that would be cool ...

    @Ian2:  Apparently Steve said, "We're not going to do a major revamp of Windows 7 for slate applications, that will come in the next version..".  I take it this to mean we shouldn't expect to see Windows Phone 7's metro interface or app store come to Windows 7.  But he also did say that they had some Windows 7 touch optimizations in the works...it would be nice to get some insight about what that will encompass.

    I don't know, Metro is just a design guideline for Silverlight, and Silverlight is already in there with XNA.  And isn't markletplace really  just an application that runs on Windows?
