    Okay here comes some criticism Wink

    You should remember that your show is called "This week on channel 9" and not "found some dev-stuff somewhere on the web". You don't cover what happend on channel 9 any more, that's really sad. So i have to browse all the new videos and see what's interessting or not.

    Dan your pick of the week is really cool! MSR rocks!
    Watch this video:

    Brian you should do a "This week on Visual Studio" show and don't bother most of us with boring TFS stories over and over again. SORRY!

    we really really really need a [pile of] KinectFusion videos on c9.... Smiley might be a good tie in to the c++ videos (just assuming thats what they use)

    @Rodney McKay: Our show has always strived to be the pulse of what's going on for Microsoft developers, including product announcements, community content and Channel 9 videos. You can even look at the first sentence of our first show (before we had a show name), to see our intent.

    This is Episode #1 of <insert.name.here>, a weekly recap show of our favorite things for developers including Channel9 videos, samples, bloggers, news, and much more

    I don't think we've strayed from our path as both this show and the first show featured CodeProject, MSDN, cool uses of C++ (Quake & Sudoko), and of course cool hardware (.NET Micro Fx & Kinect).  If there are specific things you think we missed this episode, let us know, but the show hasn't really changed since its inception.

    As for KinectFusion, it's awesome Smiley

    KinectFusion is the most impressive use of the Kinect I've seen since MappInect http://kinecthacks.net/mappinect-alpha-released-mappinect-builder-on-the-road/

    Teapots & 3D

    The Teapot as the basis of "hello world" in 3D comes from the Utah Teapot:

    I met Martin Newell (when we were at Adobe) and talked about Australia. I was like a total fanboy in his presence!

    @felix9: That's me plugging the sound in and out of my PC to play the intro/outro song. We're working on a way to auto-add those videos, but that's why, sorry:(
