New Clues for MEC 2012 – Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo)
On March 16, I posted my analysis of the first mysterious MEC email that was sent out that day. If you missed it, you may want to go back and read “New Clues for MEC 2012” to get caught up. Don’t worry, we’ll wait. You’re back? OK, let’s move on.
As promised, another email message about MEC 2010 was sent today. Technically the email was about the fictitious MEC 2007. Hmm, the first message was about MEC 2003 and talked about the release of Exchange 2003. Now today we get MEC 2007 and Exchange 2007. What do you want to bet the next message talks about MEC 2010 and Exchange 2010? We’ll wait and see. Anyway, back to today’s message.
Here’s what we received today:
The lobster in the message is an obvious nod to “Squeaky Lobster.” For those who need a refresher course on what Squeaky Lobster is, please see the “The Story of Squeaky Lobster” on the Exchange Team blog.
The location remains Orlando (narrowly beating out Des Moines they say… yeah right!) and the dates are unchanged, September 24-27.
The name of the resort is still somewhat hidden, but if you look close, my original guess of the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center remains on target.
Lastly, the no-so-hidden text in the garbled transmission gives us some new info:
- Early bird registration will be $1,800
- Registration opens on April 2, 2012
They didn’t say when we can expect the next message, but I expect we’ll see something come out next Thursday, March 29, in keeping with the pattern so far. Like I said, The next message should be about MEC 2010 and Exchange 2010. We’ll see if I’m right.
Update: Take a look at my thoughts about the third MEC 2012 message received on March 29.
