Mix08 Day 2 Keynote with The Steve Ballmer – Waiting…

It’s starting at 13:00 PT.  I wonder what will be announced.

So far we’ve not really heard anything new.  Sure, the Silverlight 2.0 Beta 1 runtime, tools and sdk have been released (along with a disappointing roadmap for Silverlight on Mobile, save for the Nokia involvement as some unspecified point) along with a developer/standards ie8 beta 1.

If there’s any kind of announcement, I’d expect it would be in relation to a cloud-based service.

I’d like to hear about something both cool and surprising and preferably fully-baked to download today.

Microsoft platform technologies are so community-previewed these days – using the conversation to fine tune the product – that there’s nothing that surprising any more.

Let’s see…
