I remember having a chat with Joel Semeniuk last Autumn around the usefulness (or not) of webcasts.  My contention was that they are great for little snippets of information - particularly highly visual demos, but the longer webcasts just pass me by.  I'd rather pick up a book or online article so that I can dip in and out of the bits that interest me rather than have to sit through 30-60 mins of programming in case something important comes along.

The good news (for me at least) is that I am not the only person to have thought that and Tim and the folks in the UK Developer Evangelist team have put together this set of MSDN Nuggets.

Enjoy!
