Second, my recent interview with Dr. Greg Low and his world famous "SQL Downunder Podcast" is now avaialbe at http://www.sqldownunder.com/PreviousShows/tabid/98/Default.aspx. In show #39, Greg and I talk about the Spatial features support in SQL Server 2008.
Lastly, just a reminder that the Heartland Developers' Conferences (http://www.heartlanddc.com/) are just around the corner. There's going to be a lot of great content at these shows and I'm looking forward to them. I'll be giving a talk about the Spatial features in SQL Server 2008.
