Thank you Kansas City .NET User Group!

img092 Last night I had the pleasure of speaking to the Kansas City .NET User Group about the services available in the Windows Live Platform.  The turnout was great and I want to thank their president, John Alexander, for inviting me and being a very gracious host. I look forward to being invited back.

For those interested, I've uploaded the presentation to my SkyDrive. It contains an overview of the features and architecture of Windows Live and links to further resources for getting started.

There were also some questions I didn't have answers to that I wanted to be sure follow up on. They are answered below:

What is Windows Live QnA? This is a new service that allows you to post questions to the cloud and (hopefully) get answers - "Ask and let the world answer!" is the tag line. Questions can be about any topic and members earn points for answering and being voted the best answer. It's still in early stages of beta, but it has some interesting social dynamic aspects. Check it out for yourself and share your comments.

When will the full VS 2008 Professional discs for holiday installfest attendees be shipped? The last information I received from our marketing offices stated that the discs would be shipped on or around March 3rd.

woot! I am famous (I can see my bald head shining in your photo)! I enjoyed the presentation and from it got inspired to investigate using LiveID for user authentication to get single login funcationality. Good stuff. Thanks again!
