Damien Darren has written about MSDN Connection, and specifically on the concept of points. It has turned into a pretty interesting discussion within the comments of his post.
This is an area of MSDN Connection that I hope will be well received, points for participation. So, as you attend Microsoft events, user group meetings, or participate on online forums, blogs, newsgroups etc you accumulate points. This has gotta be a good thing!
On a related note, someone asked me how many folks have signed up so far - well last time I checked the stats we had 1,300 people in the system. I need to run another report to get the latest figure...
**UPDATED, sorry Darren. I had a brain fart.
