MIX is not about the web
In the new MIX08 podcast found at "The Signal", during episode 2 or 3, it's stated that MIX is all about the Web (not the exact quote). I disagree. MIX is about UX. It's about the tools and technologies from Microsoft to build those experiences. Its about getting designers, developers, architects and business owners together.
To me MIX is there to help all of us (and Microsoft) to learn to work with each other (designers & developers) and for line-of-business owners to learn the value of design work. It's there for the cross pollination of ideas. It's there to move app's into a new realm of great software (not just great looking software).
Microsoft has UX. And MIX should be about this page.
Notice that Surface is on that page. I bet we see Surface in person at MIX. It's a perfect fit since Surface uses WPF. And the experience behind Surface is tied so closely to the device. How about a hands on WPF lab for Surface"?
But back to the Signal. While I disagree with the statement that MIX is about the Web, I will say that from listening to the Signal podcast it sounds like there's going to be some great things over the Vegas sky during MIX08.
See you there.
