I've set up an MSN Community to support my Visual Basic programming class in
the fall,
and, to introduce it to my students, I plan to do an overview presentation
on it.
I'll make this presentation available to you as well when it is ready.  That
give you the picture that you cannot get without going to some extra effort.

My trip report from Tech-Ed 2000 should also be released soon.  While it
does not
talk at all about the MSN Communities, it does talk a lot about the
behind them and the various directions throughout the major industries
(General Motors,
GE, Boeing, etc).  Part of what is holding it up is a set of complete
transcripts to
Bill Gates' speeches at the world-wide Government Leaders conference and the
Fortune 2000 CEO conference.

And when I choose "Ignore this warning and proceed at your

would appreciate it, if you could send me, or maybe all of
Team Ada, a summary of the benefits of the system (besides
getting rid of me).
