  • Kevin:  great presentation in Detroit!  Thanks for putting these together!  A nice touch would be to have it as an import-able SharePoint list for my site!

  • Interesting idea!  I'll have to consider that...

    (But I still want you to come to my blog, too!)  

    Thanks Mark!

  • Boy Mark, you want Kevin to do all the work!

    I simply copied the page to Word 2k7, saved it as a pdf and uploaded it to the user group sharepoint site.  And the links at the end of the document still link back to Kevin's blog.
