One of the innovations at TechEd thsi year was a blog aggregator. It is still going at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/events/teched/cc531163.aspx
The bloggers that contribute are a really good cross-section of the IT Community. The current list of contributors can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/events/teched/cc512825.aspx
You should recognise a number of the names.
One of the good things is that Microsoft staff including PSS engineers are contributing as well.
An RSS feed is available from http://teched.indepthtalk.net/Feed.rss
Very strongly recommended

From Nathan - MMMUG leader
Here are the details of our September MMMUG meeting.
This event will be held in London at the MSFT offices in Cardinal Place near Victoria.
This month we have a exciting session led by John Stewart-Murray from Dialogic. John will be introducing telephony to us as IT Pros. We will cover useful terms and then look at common scenarios which you may encounter.
We will then also look at how telephony is becoming integrated into the Exchange world by talking about how the telephony world operates with the Exchange UM role.
The meeting will be held on Wednesday 10th September.
