Greetings from Las Vegas, where I’m presenting at SharePoint Connections, an event for which I’m also the content chair for IT Pros, along with Andrew Connell who handles the developer content. Today is a bit freaky for me, because I’m presenting a full-day preconference workshop, the SharePoint Collaboration Jump Start and it’s the first time I’ve been asked to present a workshop about the “old version” of SharePoint (WSSv3, MOSS 2007) now that I can also talk about the “new version” (SharePoint Foundation and Server 2010).

It’s like walking a line between the past and the future, and it is also fascinating to hear the questions that people are asking, now that they are hearing about what’s new in SharePoint 2010. I’m finding myself having to split my brain between 2007 and 2010!

I also wanted to take a moment to update you about two issues I raised in previous editions of the SharePointPro Connections UPDATE newsletter: scalability and virtualization. There’s good news, and there’s bad news.
