If you are going to be in Orlando the first week of June, stop on by TechEd [http://www.microsoft.com/events/teched2007/default.mspx] which is the premiere chance for developers,  IT professionals, and really anybody interested in technology to get together and learn about what's on the horizon.

 

Although I won't be presenting, I'll be there manning the VB.Net and Visual Studio Orcas booths answering questions talking about 'the next big thing' and trying to really connect with you.

 

Also, if you won't be able to attend try checking out Virtual TechEd at [http://www.virtualteched.com/Pages/default.aspx] which will slowly grow into a resource center for technical education.
