CARLSBAD, Calif.--So I'm here live at D6 and ready to live blog the Bill and Steve show, along with Webware's Rafe Needleman. If this newfangled tech works, the live blog will be below.

I'm told the Windows 7 preview will be just a tiny--if highly anticipated--part of the discussion. My source on that, by the way, is Bill Gates.

OK, so the blog is up and running. If you need a break, I have another post based on some of Gates' pre-keynote talk. (short version--no comment on Yahoo)
