MMS2010: Excited and Sad

I've arrived in Las Vegas and excited about MMS 2010, however, i feel sad as well as this year is not going to be the same.

Due to the Icelandic Ash Cloud, alot of european based speakers and delegates have had to cancel their trip. Not sure what's going to happen to the sessions which had these speakers scheduled but generally its going to affect MMS2010 in a big way. I was looking forward to meeting up with good friends but it looks like thats not going to happen this year.

Will be reporting as much as I can from MMS2010 in hope that it will benefit those that could not make it due to this.
