Introduction

this was my first PDC. i'm interested in lots of different technologies, so went to a mix of sessions. this article will primarily just be a list of different technologies and my current thoughts about them. NOTE alot of these technologies are beta (or alpha), so things will change at release. also, i only know a little bit about these ... so alot of this is probably wrong (you've been warned). right now this list is just composed of blogs that i've read and my own notes
