You might be at an MVP conference if...

During an onstage demonstration of a Bluetooth mouse, the demo computer finds 37 nearby Bluetooth cell phones. The people on the bus from the hotel to building 33 on the Microsoft campus know the route better than the driver.

  • During an onstage demonstration of a Bluetooth mouse, the demo computer finds 37 nearby Bluetooth cell phones.
  • The people on the bus from the hotel to building 33 on the Microsoft campus know the route better than the driver.
  • People in the food line compare the way the food’s laid out to preemptive paging (since the butter is on the buffet table ahead of the muffins).
  • The buses begin running to the 9:00 conference every 10 minutes beginning at 6:45 AM. The 6:45 bus is full.
  • Steve Ballmer gets a standing ovation—just for walking on stage.
  • After the bus drops off everyone at the hotel, everyone heads straight for their rooms. (An empty hotel bar reminds us this ain’t iForum.)
  • You can’t get a DHCP lease via the wireless connection at the hotel cause it ran out of addresses.
  • Opening up a tablet PC doesn’t impress anyone.
  • People observe how the line for the bathroom resembles an MSQS shared queue. People laugh. This happens 5 times a day for 3 days straight.
  • Shouting, "Hey! Bill!" over the crowd causes 10 seconds of innumerable camera flashes before anyone realizes you're talking to your friend Bill Bloedel.
  • You’re writing this article from the bus and posting it via your Verizon Wireless mobile Internet connection card.
