St. Patrick’s Day and Waiting for C1 East 2009 in New York

I flew into New York today, headfirst into a sea of green.  It is St. Patrick’s Day after all, and there doesn’t seem to be a better place to be Irish than NY, NY.

I missed the parade.  I also missed the memo that would have reminded me to wear green.  Thankfully (though there were many opportunities), I escaped the crowds without a single pinch.

Now, I’m in my hotel room anticipating an exciting day for Sun tomorrow.  I’ll be tweeting live from the event and also doing some demos.  So, if you’re in town, swing by the Marriott Marquis and look me up.  Meanwhile, tune into the Web event.
