Last week, I had three one-on-one “wireside“ chats with Tim Anderson, Jon Udell, and Peter Coffee. They were all very interesting conversations on topics they were interested in in the area of databases and XML. Everyone had a slightly different focus, but all asked very good questions about the convergence of XML and databases and how they should and can be combined (and how users can find the right modelling approach for their data). Jon just posted his synopsis of our chat. Check it out. Jon gives a good synopsis and calls out some important aspects.
I apologize for the missing recording functionality of the discussion (we offered to repeat it with recording the demos), but I would like to point out that you can get to see some of the demos on our MSDN WebCasts.
