I'm at Microsoft TechEd in Auckland today and tomorrow --- they reached out to invite a few open source people, so I thought I'd go and check out their messages. It's fun too. One of the highlights of today was a talk about geolocation APIs ... the presenter showed the creation of a toy HTML geolocation app, but couldn't get it working in Chrome and had to switch to Firefox :-). And apparently IE9 isn't going to support the geo APIs at all as far as anyone knows. Funny sort of demo for a Microsoft conference!
In fact so far I haven't seen anything about IE9 at all. There's a lot more Silverlight/WIndows Phone 7. I wonder if that's accidental (this is just the first day after all) ... or not.
