If you're not signed ip yet, get on it before it's too late! January 19-23, 2004 is MSDN's ASP.net Webcast week. I just enjoyed an excellent presentation by Jim Blizzard on ASP.Net State Management. it was great that he even referenced Rory's blog in the presentation for more information on an example. The code samples from Jim's presentation are going to be posted on his site. The other presentations coming this week are:

This is a great resource that Microsoft is offering the development community. I highly recommend checking these out if you have not already. It's great to have the MSDN events come through town (Please don't stop that) but having the webcasts is a great way to keep learning. If you can't make a session or they are full, all of the presentations will also be available aftwards for on-demand viewing. There are many more upcoming as well.
At our last user group meeting, a number of us were talking about how cool it would be to find a way to webcast some of our speaker presentations. We had some people drive 2.5 hours each way to our last meeting. It would be great to expand our reach as well as interact with other groups. Maybe we need INETA webcasts?
