On August 9th, it looks like Rocky will be in Grand Rapids at the West Michigan .NET User Group. I've never met him, but I've read a few of his articles (even commented on his writings here and here). He'll be talking about creating distributed object-oriented applications in .NET.
It should be a good talk. If you're in the West Michigan area, check it out. Here are the details:
The Waterworks Pub in the Waterworks Building - downtown Grand Rapids
August 9th, 6 P.M.
You can always go to the West Michigan .NET User Group webpage too.
