While the team continues getting ready for Mix09 coming up this week, we wanted to let you know about another unique opportunity coming up next week.  On Thursday, March 26th, the IE team will host the Internet Explorer 8 FireStarter event.  This is a one-day conference with IE8 talks from myself and other team members.  If you are local to Redmond, we invite you to attend the event in person.  Other options to attend are via Live Meeting or at a live streaming session hosted by your local user group.  (Check with your INETA or Culminis associated user group.)  Here is the schedule for the day (times are Pacific local time):
