First day of Microsoft Ignite. First lesson, with 23, 000 attendees you need more than ONE working escalator. Second lesson, I really loved the hangout area. I could not decide on which session to take so I took them all. This is one large screen where you can switch back and forth between sessions or just watch CNN. Lesson Three, CNN headquarters is right across the street and they have a great food court, which after today is where I will be eating lunch.
