Starting Jan 18 (2005), there will be 3-4 weeks of webcasts available for architects and developers and IT pros dealing with interoperability between MS .Net platforms and IBM, BEA, and MS-COM applications and systems.  Also included are architectural webcasts detailing how to plan for interoperability in your designs.  Check out the list of webcasts at

One of the Webcasts is titled:  Microsoft and Interoperability.  Do They Really Get It?  With a title like that, you gotta at least watch the first 5-10 minutes, right?  (1/25/05 9AM PST)
