Loud Music Not Conducive to Technical Discussions

What were they thinking?

Although a loud band can sometimes be a good thing [1], technical conferences are not included in those times. I think that whoever decided to put a band in the middle of the conference floor at lunch today at TechEd did not understand the conference's demographic. Sure, it's cool that we're celebrating 15 years and all, but when people are trying to meet and eat and have technical discussions, it's damned annoying when you have to shout to hear yourself… Next time around, let's please have the noise at the Worldwide Partner Conference, not at TechEd.


[1] Or a great thing, if it's the world's loudest band - Manowar, the Kings of Metal!
