Julie just IMed me to point out that Chris Sells blogged that "I Think VSLive Is *It*". I've been working with Fawcette for a long time - this was my 12th annual show in SF with them - and along the way I guess I just took that for granted.
Then I read where Chris said "... their coverage is top notch for 3rd party Windows developer conferences". Well, now that I think about it, I have to say "Thanks, Chris!". I'd forgotten that I was the conference chair for VSLive (and VBITS). Just tooting my own horn <smile>
