…it’d now be worth $2,200. Basically…my investment would be nearly down by 50%. I am wondering if it’s really wise to keep any money in the market at all. Perhaps there is a wiser way to invest. Albeit, lesser profits but safer.
All, I can say is WOW! We still haven’t recovered from the .Com bubble bust. Just look at the chart below…
I wonder how long we’ll take to recover from this recession. It’s an epic fail of Efficient Market Hypothesis.
This is not the actual representation. But a very vague one at best…

This is a really cool TED talk! I don’t know if it’s enlightening or entertaining or thought provoking or none or all of the above. It was very unique and since I come from India and it’s almost 10 years of me living in a Western country my thought process is a little too mixed. I however know the nuances in each school of thought…probably the best thing to gain from exposure and diversity. Watch and let me know what you think…
I am very happy to see the Microsoft Technology Conference come to fruition! I’ll be presenting at this conference along with my colleague Chris Avis. Come join us for a whole day of fun & learning.
I look forward to seeing you at the event.

MSDN Events Presents: From Zero to XAML in 4 Hours
Learning XAML for use in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Silverlight can be a little daunting. This seminar with Paul Sheriff of PDSA, Inc will introduce the basic concepts of XAML and show you how to get started quickly and easily. You will be given an overview of XAML tools such as VS.NET 2010 and Expression Blend. If you are new to Silverlight and WPF you need to attend this seminar to see how to move to these powerful new platforms. The focus on this seminar is using XAML to build business applications.
After the initial XAML introduction we will then dive deep into the data binding features of WPF. We will explore the many ways to retrieve and present data using data binding in WPF. You will see examples of loading data into combo boxes, list views, and the WPF DataGrid. You will learn how to populate WPF controls using a DataTable, Collection Classes, XML, LINQ to SQL and the Entity Framework.
The next deep dive we will do will focus on creating standard Login and About dialogs, menu systems, toolbars, status bars, etc. At the end of this seminar you will walk away with tons of samples that you can put into use right away.
You will Learn:
1. Introduction to XAML, WPF and Silverlight
2. XAML Controls used in Business Applications
3. Introduction to Styles
4. Data Binding Techniques in WPF
5. Building standard business forms, dialogs and tools
