@Charles: The truth is that you have left a serious void, there are a lot of People that went to work for Microsoft or started using the tech simply because of the information that you managed to extract.
I hate my initial post, because I know Dan and the team are working very hard and it seems like I am having a dig at them, but I am not. Take the Clem Vasters Azure videos. there is a lot of interesting stuff there, but for all the slick power-points, and API breakdowns, in a going deep we would have gotten a question like "so, Map Reduce, there is the whiteboard, does that marker work? No, try this one, Right, how does this work? Niners want you to get technical, the more technical, the better!"
This means a lot of the time, when you end up using a technology, you know whats going on deep inside, developers like to know stuff like that, rather than the stream of "we have created these new API's, this is how you download, install and use them", that tends not to ever really be exciting, nor does it make one want to use it (e.g. Bart and Rx)
