The San Antonio SharePoint Users Group (SASUG) hosted Heather Solomon at this month’s meeting. If you haven’t seen Heather in person, she’s a SharePoint branding expert and excellent speaker. There are some excellent resources on her website, as well.
I’m posting highlights from my sparse notes. SASUG attendees, please add comments with your notes, to fill in the holes.

My little flirtation with reCaptcha is done for the time being. I found 20 spam comments this morning after my blog was rescusitated by the helpful Webhost4life staff. I’m trying out a new comment spam blocker. This one doesn’t require you to read blurry words and doesn’t solve hard computer tasks for the common good through your effort. Hopefully, it will block comment spam though.

While watching Dustin Miller’s SharePoint Designer session this morning, I found quite a few other bloggers from Dustin’s SharePoint Blogs site.
- Matt McDermott’s blog already has links from one of his sessions, look for more from him on his other two sessions. I learned about the Theasaurus at his search presentation.
- Terry Stein apparently has left Seattle early, but blogged highlights from the sessions he attended during the first three days.
- The official conference site has some technorati and flickr searches for SPC2008
- Michael Gannotti has detailed info on the Community Kit updates I mentioned earlier
- MikeC has a one paragraph summary including Greg LeMond thoughts
- Robin’s blog at ZevenSeas has a lot of blog posts on sessions at the conference.
Seen more blogs on the conference? Let me know.

- Microsoft GEAR Up offers a downloadable BUZZ kit for SharePoint adoption with Training Resources
- I liked their suggestion that the “power of 5″ works for SharePoint Adoption. If you roll out to 200 people, 5 loud proponents within the business may be all you need to kickstart adoption.
- FAST provides a .Net API and web parts they demoed in SharePoint. They were highlighting “zero keyword search” and faceted search.
- The Community Kit for SharePoint team announces the immenent release of Enhanced Wiki Edition Beta 3 this summer
- In addition, an updated version of Beta 2 will be posted soon. Beta 2 includes enhanced markup in addtion to discussion and table of contents

I’m blogging live from Microsoft’s 2008 SharePoint Conference in Seattle. Bill Gates just finished delivering his keynote. During the keynote, there were a number of interesting announcements including the following:

No, this isn’t related to SharePoint, but it’s a topic of the day. Do I need HDTV and if so, how much?
To baseline my goal, I’m happy with my 35″ standard definition CRT tube TV. I’m estimating a 37″ widescreen would be the equivalent because of the diagonal measurements.
So say I’ve decided on a size. What about the whole 1080p versus 1080i versus 780p decision? Wikipedia has something to say on the 1080p matter. Even better the wiki pointed me to an article titled 1080p Does Matter. Nice article with great charts on viewing distance and in depth criticisms and responses in the comments section. If this guys right, 1080p matters. If you’re sitting 10 feet away from your 80″ screen.
Unless I find better info, I see a nice 37″, high contrast ratio, 780p widescreen in my future.
