I've been, umm, a little remiss in keeping my blog up to date.  The good news is I've been heads down on a new project we'll be talking a great deal about at Mix (hope to see you there).

I will be traveling to Chicago next week to speak at the .NET User's Group (Tues Feb 20) and then at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (Wed Feb 21).  Here's my talk abstract:

Client software has always striven to create an ever richer user experience. In recent years we have seen many factors come together to create exciting experiences: ubiquitous access to advanced hardware, the proliferation of rich media content, the ease of incorporating advanced graphics and media, and a dramatic increase in network bandwidth. In this talk, we will explore how the .NET team is making it easy for developers to bring these experiences to end users with technology like ASP.Net AJAX, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and Visual Studio. Along the way we’ll write some code and look at some new technologies under development.

Sounds a little formal.  Need to work on making my abstracts more pithy :)
