“NoSQL in the Cloud” panel discussion today (3/11/2010)

Sorry for the late notice on this but in a few hours I’m going to be participating in a panel discussion at the “NoSQL Live” Boston conference. I’ll be the Microsoft guy on the panel and I’m guessing that I’ll be talking a lot about Windows Azure Storage. 

The event runs from 8am to 11pm today at the John Hancock Hotel & Conference Center (40 Trinity Place, Boston, MA 02116).  The “NoSQL in the Cloud” panel discussion runs from 10:45a to 11:45a.
