On the one hand, it's clear that most of the folks following this thing are giving Kim and Microsoft a lot of slack (no “Passport 2.0” this time around, thankfully). On the other hand, we still have a long way to go.
He's right. We do.
Doc did an amazing couple of sessions on the final day at DIDW – I wonder if Phil Becker will eventually make them generally available as podcasts? That would sure be cool – though it's a lot to expect out of a conference – even a forward thinking one like DIDW.
