Bill Gates, Ray Ozzie — Analyst and Press Only Event in San Francisco

I’m heading off a little later this morning to an Analyst/Press only event with Bill Gates and Ray Ozzie at the Palace Hotel here in San Francisco. Gates and Ozzie will be “discussing Microsoft’s vision and future direction and preview upcoming technologies from Microsoft.” I saw that Dave Winer was invited to this event as well.

It’s interesting that Microsoft’s PR firm Waggener Edstrom is considering bloggers as press these days. Microsoft and Waggener Edstrom are two companies that seem to get the potential of blogging. Smart move on their part.
