Do you find that the majority of web pages and videos you watch from large corporations are too marketingy? - Too much "rich, scalable, platform", and not enough "how to", "hands-on" and useful content ? - It's interesting to see how well MSDN Channel 9 and skunk works content are being picked up, for example the VBTV show (which I think is over engineered) - sometimes I think we forget that we have new users out there, developers that don't know how to configure an embedded operating system, have never written an XML Web Service, have no clue what the difference is between GDI, DirectX, Avalan, and where to use each of the technologies. Sure there are going to be some developers keeping up with the latest bits, but I'm guessing that the majority are still interested in knowing how, when, and why to use certain technologies, right ?
