I really do want to get back to technical blog posts but I have one more announcement first. Victor Gaudioso will be in Dallas September 25th and 26th.  This will be the first of what I hope will become a series of weekends with Silverlight related authors that I am calling "sharing the light".  If this works out well, I am hoping to organize 4-5 sessions a year.  They will be one or two days -- authors choice.  Please sign up for Sharing the Light - Victor Gaudioso dives into Silverlight Development with Blend at http://sharingthelight.eventbrite.com.
