With November 7th only 2 1/2 weeks away, many of the launch events are already booked, but you can still register for them!  I'm going to be popping my head in at a few at the "Ask The Experts" area answering questions and such. 

You can find more info about the launch events here:

Canada http://www.microsoft.com/canada/launch2005/

USA http://www.microsoft.com/events/2005launchevents/

I'll let you know what events I plan on attending as things are confirmed, but I suspect I'll be at a few in Canada, and at least the one here in Seattle!
