Yes I was cornered and forced to be in front of a camera... Not really, I agreed to do it. The OBA (Office Business Applications) team has taken an interest in my work with the SharePoint/Office book (http://blogs.msdn.com/edhild/pages/pro-sharepoint-solution-development-combining-net-sharepoint-and-office-2007.aspx)... We compared notes at a recent conference.

You can check out the interview at:

For those of you looking for my conference presentation, I am working on a series of blog posts with the details. You should see some this weekend. For those that can't wait, I have posted the slide deck and code on my internal msweb mysite.

Now back to writing the book. I am on my last chapter and Susie is as well so almost done. My current work is an Excel spreadsheet smart-document that takes content from various sites offline.

Thanks -Ed
