A while ago, I did a post about the great Developer Training Kits available for free download from Microsoft. Since then, we've released a bunch more, so I thought I'd list all of the ones I use regularly in one place. Each of these great resources include hundreds of MB videos, presentations, white papers, demo scripts, labs and more. Grab them today.

Some time ago now, I posted a thought piece in which I explained the evolution of the platform using the analogy of the evolution of water supply. At a recent internal event, I presented this analogy to help explain how cloud computing changes the way we think about the supply of computing services and infrastructure.
I've uploaded the video to Channel9, so you can go there to watch it streamed or to download in various formats including Zune, MP3, MP4, WMA and WMV.
Let me know what you think.
I got this in my inbox this morning:
