Dan, we could hit the Dresden.
This is a pretty cool, but aren't you charged for having this WAAWR application constantly deployed? It seems like a waste of a compute instance for something that won't be used all that often.
Edit: I watched a little bit further, and I think I have a better understanding of this. Does (or could) the WAAWR web application share the same web role instance with all the websites that it manages and deploys?
In the hello world example, how in the heck does Console.ReadLine() publish events for the event stream being subscribed to?
In the later demos using the ISubject<> interface, it's pretty obvious how publishing and subscribing actions are bound together.
In the hello world demo, it seems like a little bit of magic is being used.
I figured somewhere in the upper reaches of California is where you had gone. Heck, you would have had a much shorter drive by flying into Eugene, OR and driving south than by flying into San Francisco and driving north.
BTW, that statue of Babe is more anatomically correct than it needs to be.

You're right. After rewatching that segment, I now realize that there was indeed a mention of the word "quack", but I simply stated that I didn't recall the word being uttered. Maybe because it was the subtle way in which he said it. I don't think he was saying it any mean-spirited way though. Otherwise, I would have really would have remembered his saying the word "quack".
Uh, Paul, Redwood City is about 30 minutes south of San Francisco. It's home to a couple of companies you might be familiar with (given your knowledge about SQL and gaming): Oracle and Electronic Arts.
BTW, that 30 minutes is with no traffic. In reality, it may actually seem like 6 hours like you mentioned, but you got the direction incorrect.
The download page shows that it's published back in May (5/25/2011), and it's even titled "Windows Azure AppFabric SDK V2.0 CTP – May Update".

C'mon guys. Wouldn't it make sense to take a moment and read up on a topic before standing in front of cameras and talking about it? I would go so far as to say that you have a smidgeon of responsibility to your viewers to inform yourselves, particularly if your going to pass judgment on someone's research by calling it quackery.
To be clear, a QUACK is defined a person who dishonestly claims to have special knowledge and skill in some field, typically in medicine.
I'm assuming you just didn't do your homework, so I'll provide you with a bit of information here:
The system I built uses depth information from the Kinect to translate the therapist's movements into imagery which is projected onto the client during a healing session. Both the client and practitioner wear video goggles so that they may see themselves from an out-of-body camera perspective. When face-down, clients use the face-cradle display to see themselves. The idea is that a person’s perception of pain is tied to subjective visual feedback.
My suggestion is that you go to the website and take a moment to read some of the actual research: www.intelligenthealingspaces.com
I don't recall the term "quack" being uttered by either Laura or Paul.
It just occurred to me that from a profile, Tina looks a lot like Jewel Kilcher.
