Well, we (some of the folks who brought you PDC03 and PDC05) are putting on another conference and it's targeted at web devs, designers and business professionals who work in the online world. Folks like Amazon, Yahoo, etc. That's who we want to engage and show them our cool technologies that will help them be more productive, profitable, and happy. Something different here, though. We will spend a lot of time conversing with the attendees in groups, addressing their feedback and concerns in real time. How many conferences do that? None that Microsoft puts on. MIX06 is an atypical event and the first of its kind put on by Microsoft.
It should be a great conference given that it will be a significant departure from the traditional Microsoft events. More laid back, more attendee-focused (meaning more time really listening to the attendees vs spraying information all over everybody with a rushed Q&A at the end. No. Not this time. Not at Mix.)
Besides the great things we'll be addressing for the WWW-minded, we'll be in Vegas. Vegas, baby! Definitely one of the better venues for a conference, not to mention we'll be at the Venetian.
I highly encourage any of you in the online world to try and make it. If you're a dev or a designer or both or somebody who thinks about www.business all the time, well, come on down. It will be worth it for sure. But enough of the rhetoric.

See you in Vegas,
