Now this I like...
+1 for making the PDC content much more discoverable. I think it's one of C9's crown jewels and it's hidden so well I kinda assumed it was done deliberately.
"There's a lot of very useful information in this conversation with plenty of whiteboarding."
I read that sentence as "... with plenty of water-boarding." Sheesh, sign of the times.
woo hoo, my London based Chrome browser says thank you.

I think I own the Mac guy's jeans. They look like a pair of Paul Smith/Diesel.
Worrying thing is that I also own a sports jacket that looks similar to Windows guy. Not quite as lame though ...
I have a questions about the new table cell naming (ie where cell refrences like $E2 are replaced with names like [2004 prices] (http://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=177827&pvrid=269).

OWA for Exchange 2000 literally was the grand-daddy of AJAX. AJAX leverages the XmlHttp object for communication with the server "in the background". The XmlHttp object in IE was developed primarily for OWA.
A few articles MSDN later and a team I worked on started using it for internal corporate web applications. The Soap wizard & web behavior shipped and things became simple. Skip forward a few years, an XMLHttp implementation goes into Firefox/Mozilla and Google picks up the stick and runs with it.
There's guys on the team I used to work with that regularly deconstruct the gmail / gmap code. The Google developers seem to have learnt a lot tricks to really push the performance.
