In this show we have a roundtable at the recent RIAPalooza event in Chicago.  We talk with two RIA experts: Josh Holmes of Microsoft (and the Code to Live Show) and Mike Labriola of Digital Primates and an Adobe Community Expert - Flex.  Josh and Mike were fresh off their "Best and Worst Practices Building a RIA" session from the event.

Before the interview Dave and Larry talk about untested way of getting a generation 1 iPhone on the cheap as well as ways to "cheat" at the new Lego Indiana Jones xbox game.
