MIX06: Vegas, baby!

First, eBay Web Services got a few nice mentions from Bill Gates in yesterday's opening keynote at the Microsoft MIX06 conference, including how eBay Web Services API's are great example of how to take advantage of a platform:

""eBay is an extreme example where half the product listings are done in a programmable way."

Then, Christin Boyd, author of the eBay/Outlook 2007 integration via eBay Web Services, and eight-year Microsoft vet, gave her own demo in a break out session, resplendent in Vegas attire. Why, even Elvis showed up to bid on items at the demo featuring eBay API integration.

And then here's Adam in front of a full house at the Web 2.0 Show me the money panel, with Jeremy from Yahoo!, Tim O'Reilly, TechCrunch and others.

Is there such a thing as having too much fun at a tech conference?
