India 20-Oct-2011 : SCNotties Awards, TechEd sessions and much more

Breaking my usual obsessive chronological ordering of event blogs, I’m starting with the penultimate event of this evening (Design Thinking event is ongoing, but I’m on deadline). First, the winnners of the SCNotties 2011 Bollywood awards.  We used this blog, in draft form, to announce the winners to the audience in India, then I reformatted it compactly.  Links to the 10 winning videos are below.

Abesh Bhattacharjee and Somnath Manna jumped in at nearly the last minute to come up with appropriate categories for the winners with local cultural references.  I am not going to explain any of them here.  If you get the jokes, that’s great. If not, someone will explain it to you.  The complete entries are on the wiki page “30 seconds of recognition – 2011 Bollywood Edition“.


Without further ado, the winners are…


SCNotties Awards!

The last award is for the second entrant (not including Abesh or myself).  Many of you may have seen this video.  If not, it should explain what being second implies for leadership qualities.

TechEd Regular Programming


I’m just going to leave the notes made during each session unformatted.  They may not mean anything in 6 months, but should remind me what I thought interesting then.  I have screen shots, audience shots, and more (at the end).


Before the conference day started:

20 minute brisk walk, a little late but room had 4 attendees and 4 people at the podium with nothing on the screen. Wireless was super-speedy.
