I am very excited to be heading to AjaxWorld in New York City March 19-21st. I'll be doing a talk I am calling "AJAX in the Balance"… Here is the abstract I came up with… I'd love to have any feedback, thoughts, impressions…

Meaningful, productive, forward looking AJAX is at core a balance. A balance between client and server. A balance between commercial and open source. A balance between single platform and multiplatform. A balance between de facto and du jour standards. A balance between well established and emerging technologies. Come hear from Microsoft's Brad Abrams, who has been designing parts of the .NET Framework since 1998, how Microsoft is supporting and encouraging this balance with ASP.NET AJAX (formerly code-named "Atlas") and future technologies.

Are you going? What are you looking forward to hearing or not hearing about?
