The PDC is just around the corner folks, so if you haven't signed up yet then now's the time to get on it.  There's going to be some great SharePoint 2010 developer content at this year's PDC, including a number of really brilliant folks from the SharePoint Product Group there.  I would name names, but then I would leave someone out and incur untold wrath.  For more details specifically on the SharePoint developer content take a look at Steve Fox's blog on this event at http://blogs.msdn.com/steve_fox/archive/2009/10/25/office-sharepoint-development-at-pdc.aspx.
