Scott Swanson, who is a program manager on the Visual Studio 2005 team (code-named Whidbey) talks about the help SDK that developers will be able to use to plug in their own help functionality.

Audio is a bit low on the interview, but Scoble is asking whether a team, like the Office team, or a third-party product, could be able to make their own help system that plugs into Visual Studio. The answer is yes, and Scott talks about how to build a search provider, and what that is.

      Offtopic: Someone talks behind the camera (asking questions presumably?), but unfortunately the only microphone you are using isn't picking it up well.

      That was me, sorry about that. We're buying better microphones. Unfortunately the ones we're currently using only allow one input at the moment. I should have edited it down to two videos.
