* Next, Alan Vermeulen, the CTO from Amazon.com is here to talk about what Amazon is working on around Web Services.
* He's showing a Smart Client that interfaces with Amazon WS.  I've taken video clips of the interface in action, I'll put them up soon.
* There's a calendar of product releases, and you can then overlay your calendar.
* They'll have the demos available at their booth...I'm all over this.  The Amazon guys did a great job at the XMLDevCon and its good to see that they are still cutting edge.

Jim Alchin is wrapping up now...that's all for the FOUR HOUR KEYNOTE.

Time to rest my thumbs.

Sigh.

* They've brought out the folks from Adobe.
* They've got an image editing program (Adobe After Effects) that can export images/vectors/ui as XAML declarative UI directly!
* They imported the XAML file directly into VS.NET and get a form.  Its a VERY dynamic, sexy UI with annimations, charts, gradients.  The kind of stuff you'd have to do in Flash. 
* They just called a Web Service and populated the metadata.  The designer created the UI and the WS programmer didn't have to sweat the UI at all. 
* Now, Jim Karkanias from Merck
* Awesome, they are going to show how they are using Indigo to support a Health Clinical Trial.  An app after my own heart.
* Cool, real time wireless health data from a health monitor attached to Jim.  Jim has a resting heart rate of 87bpm.
* Now they've created a health anomaly iin Jim and identified a pattern with other people in the study, then they pulled map data in and found out if the patients have location in common.  They they alpha-blend a map of the current pollen count (another WS call) to discover that the anomalous event was an unusual pollen count.

* using System.MessageBus - the namespace for Indigo, interesante.
* Now, Don is going to use the Indigo system to post directly to his blog (http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/dbox) from the stage.
* They are checking out his blog, and they see that he hasn't blogged since last night.
* BOOM.  Posted.  Check it out.
* Now, they've switched to VB.NET (apparently Chris has been in the closet, and has been attracted to VB.NET since he was 5, but could never explain his feelings.  Don wonders if he could do both languages...)
* Now they've added a component to the sidebar that will receive an Indigo message from their client.  So they'll be talking "Indigo Messaging" for Interprocess Communication.  They added a TextPanel to the SideBar and pushed text out to it.

* Whew!  They finished the Winforms app and queried the WinFS data store and retrieved all the documents that involved Chris Anderson.
* Indigo - Now Jim is talking about Indigo, the Windows Communication System.  This includes Secure, Reliable and Transacted Web Services
* Collaboration - There's now single API for peer to peer Real Time Communication (RTC), and partitioned networks (NAT, etc.) make RTC a hassle.
* Windows will provide not just a single source/platform/api for contacts, but also for Presence!

Don Box and Chris Anderson again:

* Now they are going to add blogging capabilities to the app!
