Live Search Maps (Next Generation)
Hello Live Search Maps.... ehhh... Virtual Earth goodbye Google Maps! I was hanging out with Peter Laudati tonight and he showed me the next rev of what I call Virtual Earth. Can anybody tell me what the correct name is? Peter totally got the jump on me and blogged about the new release already! There is a new Interactive SDK (version 6) to go along with this release!

REMIX07 Boston - Day 1 (and final day for me)
Even though REMIX07 Boston is still going on until tomorrow, I had to get back to work commitments. I'm bummed because there were so many great sessions to check out. The Key Note presented by Brad Abrams was cool. He presented a number of things I had seen before, but I think the crowd was very impressed.

Funny, I never thought a book could provide a good user experience. But sometimes it is the little things in life that are overlooked. I just bought Martin Fowler's book "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture". And as always the book is written well and the content is aces. But what really dazzled me about the book is that the publisher (Addison Wesley) included a little red ribbon in the binding so I can mark my page. I know this is not new, but it is rare for a tech book. And it just ......

Dear ALT.Net Attendees:
This is an open letter to the attendees of the upcoming ALT.Net gathering in Austin TX. Dear Friends, Sadly I will not be able to join you at ALT.Net due to some poor planning on my part. I regret missing out on the opportunity to surround myself with some of the brightest minds in our industry. If I were to attend ALT.Net though, my goal would have been to represent the "marginal developer". The developer who gets it, but doesn't practice it in the work place due to circumstances beyond his/her ......
