How Cloud Computing Will Affect Every Developer

I've been working on a talk / presentation called How Cloud Computing Will Affect Every Developer, with Microsoft's Cloud Computing Platform (Windows Azure) specifically in mind. I used it for the first time today and it worked well.

Today at the PDC, Mickey Williams and I gave this talk in the form of a conversation using this presentation for Microsoft's Channel 9 (Internet video). It should be showing up on the Channel 9 site ( soon, I'll include a link once it appears.

A PDF of the presentation itself is available here:
