Dave is taking a new job working for the Xbox division. He's started to blog about what that work is all about. It looks like he's in for some fun time and will have a lot of interesting things to talk about in the coming weeks and months. If you are at all interested in game programming you may want to watch his blog.

Meanwhile, Morris Sim is introducing a lot of information about the upcoming Imagine Cup finals in Japan. He's got information and links to videos. Even if you are not going to Japan you will want to check these out. Who knows, it may help motivate you to enter next year's event.

Speaking of video, Channel 9 has a new video interview with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
