Microsoft has already sent out a save the date for next year’s MIX conference. This comes just days after they announced an indefinite postponement of PDC ‘07.
Seems like the teams at Microsoft with the momentum are on the ASP.NET/Silverlight side of the shop. And the show with the mojo is the one that builds bridges…to designers and thus to customers of other companies’ products. It would be a bit glib to say “there’s a lesson in that,” so I’ll pretend not to say it.
