What a day.
Tech*Ed kicked off in full and it was a mixed day – as usual it difficult to predict how the sessions are going to go. I should pick out John Craddock who was predictably great on 2008 R2 AD improvements.
Emerging into the dark, very wet Berlin night I (and a couple of friends) made our way to Friederickstrasse Bahnhof, and walked down to the Reichstag building to join what I now find was a crowd of 100,000 people stand in the freezing rain to listen to the current leaders of the four former occupying powers, Angela Merkel, Mikhail Gorbachov, and local dignitaries make speeches; Jon Bon Jovi sing a song; and then watch the 1000 wall dominoes tumble to the ground.
As the dominoes followed the course of part of the wall is was not a bad way to commemorate the events of 20 years ago, and I\’m pleased to say \”I was there\”.
(I might have to rotate one or both of these photos when I get back)
Now for a hot bath to quench the shivering…!!
