Will I C U at the IUC? (Redux)

It's enough to give you deja vu all over again!

But just like I was at the 29th Internationalization and Unicode Conference in San Francisco, I will be at the 30th IUC in Washington D.C. that is happening from November 15th-17th. :-)

The talks I will be doing:

Keyboards on Win32: Beyond the Keyboard Layout Creator

Sorting It All Out: More Words on Collation

Both are talks that have grown out of a combination of info such as the original talks I have done on both subjects (both on my own and with Cathy Wissink), things that have happened on this blog, through various customer contacts, items discovered while assisting folks all over Microsoft and other companies, and after the investigation and resolution of numerous bugs. I'll even talk about what comes next (well, as much as I am allowed to say, of course!). I'll post more about the presentations as the event draws nearer.

(Lest people think that this is indicative of corporate committment and whatnot, it looks like I'm doing it under my own steam -- so think of this as being proof of my personal commitment, instead. I'll be in D.C. for a week or so, taking a bit of vacation time interspersed with various meetings. And customer contact is always awesome, so if you are going to be at the conference or are in the area then definitely let me know....

As the event gets closer (and while I'm there) I'll post about where I'll be for folks who are interested in saying hi and such. :-)

See you in D.C. next month!

Microsoft has billions but can't afford to send one person to a conference. Sounds suspicious.

Or are you doing it under your own steam so you can speak more freely while you are there? I might show up if that's the reason.

I will always speak as freely as my employer allows, whether they are paying the bill or not.

I wouldn't want to speculate as to the reasons, though if they felt I would be a bad representastive they would not allow me to go. So perhaps you could read into it as far as their priorities go, but I wouldn't suggest reading into it too deeply....
