    Channel9 is great.  You've been achieving your apparent goals of informing developers and generating a more positive image for the company.  I genuinely have a more favorable view of MS after seeing and hearing the individual workers in the videos and occasionally dealing with a few of them one on one. 

    Unfortunately reality came along and threw me a staggering sucker punch with the following story regarding MS attempting to patent a representation of longitude and latitude. http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/02/06/1437236&tid=155&tid=109

    This type of behavior overwhelms any warm, fuzzy feelings generated by channel 9.
