Microsoft Small Business Summit Replays

IT Business, SMB

As we're all busy with the new quarter, taxes, speaking engagments, product rollouts and conferences the SBS Show is taking a little spring break. However, it is not an excuse not to learn. I for one have been working on C# and Mono for about two weeks now and there is no greater satisfaction than getting better at what you do. Along those lines, not everyone is at the same level. Microsoft held their first-ever Small Business Summit and broadcast it over the web. This caught far too much flak over the poor organization and execution (LiveMeeting) but the content was beyond excellent. Eric Ligman has posted the replay information so bookmark it and view in your spare time:

  1. Yeah, but you’d think they could of at least cleaned up the mess for the replays. I thought I’d listen to a couple before I recommended them to my clients; good thing I did. About half way through the one I listened to I get to spend 10 minutes listening to them troubleshoot problems on the air. Not a good use of my time and I won’t be recommending to any of clients that they waste time either.
