Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

This week's editorial will be short. It seems that there were a variety of conferences this week to attend. As such I skipped out of the office and over to Redmond for the Microsoft Office Developer Conference. I look forward to seeing what Bill Gates has to say tomorrow in the keynote and to learning what new things are happening with Office development.

In the mean time, look for our second video to post this week. Bill Hatfield will be presenting, "ASP.NET Does AJAX".In this first of several videos on the topic of Atlas, Bill will show you how to create a dynamic dropdown list using AJAX and ASP.NET.

Until next week...

Brad!
