In this weeks show, Larry sits down with some of the fine folks from Canopy Financial to discuss they started a business based on .NET technologies and tools. We also discuss Microsoft Start-Up Zone and how start-up companies can work with Microsoft to launch their businesses.

We also discuss the outcome of what Jeff Atwood was teasing us with Episode 18. A partner venture with Joel Spolsky to create a technical community portal called Stack Overflow. Joel and Jeff are also recording their weekly planning calls on offering that up as podcast, which is certainly a good listen.

We finish this week's episode by announcing our second Zune contest. One lucky winner will receive a Zune80 with custom artwork etched from ZuneOriginals.net. This contest is easy enough. Just send us your constructive feedback on what Microsoft can do better to support your work/personal life in utilizing Microsoft's tools and technologies. Send your entries to thirstydeveloper [at] live.com with the subject header of 'Zune Contest'.

Submit your feedback and your entry for a custom Zune80.
