Well I've already written 2 posts about this keynote for my team blogs (data and ADO.NET), so I don't want to write too much... but there are some great screencasts to check out...

During his presentation Britt talked a lot about Conceptual Data Programming and where Microsoft plans to focus on for future innovation in the Data Access space. He also gave a sneak peak at two tools that hadn't previously been seen... the much anticipated EDM Designer and the XSD Designer (you can expect to see more on these sometime after the upcoming Orcas release).
