    How Can "I" Get Involved?


    With me being 15 and having quite a bit of computer knowledge I am interested in going to these conventions/seminars that were held for Windows 7. I also know many people who got free software for attending. I am just extremely curious on how I can get involved and have the upper-hand advantage on being a participant.

    If anyone has any suggestions or things to say please let me know! Anything helps.

    Well my main question is... do I have to be apart of a corporation or company? Or are these things that are just held that anyone can go to?

    I started doing this many years ago. I grabbed every opportunity to "belong".
    Exceptionally, by the luck of the draw, I was accepted onto the Vista BEta testing program and, consequently, the Windows 7 program.
    I never regreted it. Frankly it comes to a point where you find a need to filter your mail and stop some of the automated responses!
