In this episode we talk with our pal Server Girl (Beth Humphreys) about Hyper-V the new virtualization technology included in Windows Server 2008.  Beth gives us a great overview of the technology and we chat about how developers can use Hyper-V technology to create a great developer rig.

Second Life Heroes Happen Here Launch

Before we jumped into the interview Dave spends some time talking about this last weekend's Heroes Happen Here launch event in Second Life (the 3D Virtual World).  The event was put on by the Second Life .NET Users Group and coordinated by our fellow Evangelist Zain Naboulsi.  You can read Zain's blog post on the event and check out some photos.
