More interesting discussions tonight at the Pub Summit. I spent time speaking with Robert and Gary on how blogging can affect your career. We also discussed general industry topics including MS growth opportunities, Google's position, etc. It was great fun to listen to Gary's anecdotes that are always colored by his previous life as a math professor. His blog has much more info. It was lively and educational- you can't ask for much more.
From there, I went out for discussions with Brad Wilkens, a phenomenal MCS resource that is focused on BizTalk Server (among other things). Brad and I worked together briefly on a project last summer, and I always enjoy chatting with him. We discussed some of the challenges that customers are facing with BizTalk and where we'd like to see the product go over the next few versions. Scott's roadmap is a good start, but there is always more to do. :)
