Next week, I am competing in Speaker Idol at TechEd 2007 in Orlando, Florida. What is Speaker Idol? Think Idol – Geek Edition. There will be twelve geeks taking the stage to sing and strut their stuff.* The Honourable Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell of .NET Rocks fame will be hosting. We’ve each got 5 minutes to present on a technical topic of our choice. The top prize is a highly-coveted speaker slot at TechEd 2008. The competition should be a lot of fun and is being broadcast from the Virtual TechEd stage. So even if you’re not there, you can cheer me on from the comfort of your own office. I’ll post links for the competition once they’re available.

* I can make no guarantees that I will or will not sing. You’ll have to tune in and find out. Open-mouthed
