Time to Mix it…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on March 19, 2006

And so, at last, to Las Vegas for Microsoft’s Mix06 web development conference.

Yesterday was the longest drive of the trip so far, from Barstow to Baker (and “The Mad Greek”), before heading off into the desert and down into Death Valley. Rain showers followed us, leaving a fine trace of yellow desert flowers.

Death Valley is an amazing place – so many colours in such a desolate place. Pictures to follow when connected to a broadband network rather than GPRS…

Today’s random americana: a frame with today’s sports page proudly displayed over a gents urinal – something to do while otherwise occupied?

    I think you need to get out more. That’s pretty common here too.

    Believe it or not, that “sports page in the urinal” tradition has been a standard in Texas for years: back in the Eighties, even the Chili’s chain instituted it. (Chili’s phased it out back about ten years ago, along with the gigantic collection of midAmerican kitsch, mostly because it was too high-maintenance. I’m glad to see that it’s still going strong elsewhere.)
