This past week, Scott Hoag and I had the privilege of presenting a session to the New York SharePoint User’s Group, hosted by Microsoft at their offices there in New York City on the Avenue of the Americas. There were a few familiar faces in the crowd such as Paul Galvin, Mary Leigh Mackie, Randi Parrish, Greg Hurlman and Jeremy Thake which made the large crowd a little less intimidating (or maybe more so to have peers evaluating us right?).
Before we presented though we had a few things to explore… such as the Apple Cube on 5th Avenue
I have to say that it was a pretty cool sight to see – the fact that the store is underground is in and of itself an interesting concept.
After a quick stop through we began wandering toward the Microsoft offices on foot… in the wrong direction… which got us caught up in remembering what it’s like to be a kid at FAO Schwarz… having never been inside the store I didn’t really know what to expect except for what I’d seen in the Smurfs movie that I saw last Fall… needless to say it was pretty crazy to see all of the candy and Gummi bears (oh and the nerds) as well as every popular toy that you could imagine from Star Wars apparel and masks to Thundercats action figures to even BatMan in Lego form.
All well worth the time spent in New York City, but for those that happen to be looking for a copy of our presentation, you can find it here through SlideShare.
