Tomorrow's news today that's BriForum 2008. Together with 20 other speakers I joined the BriForum crew this year. It's really an honor to be part of this impressive list of awesome presenters and it's great to learn from these experts!
This year I gave three presentations: Hyper-V unleashed, Streaming Smackdown 2008 Edition and Top10 challenges with SoftGrid (and other application virtualization solutions). These presentations can be downloaded from Virtuall, hopefully that makes sense!

At BriForum alot presenters and experts submitted there baby photos and 'fun facts' so Brian Madden could create a nice presentation for the attendees. After some searching in old photo books I found a nice picture of myself which fits great in the streaming smackdown session https://www.virtuall.nl/seminars/BriForum2008/BriForum08StreamingSmackdown2008.jpg
Presentation #3. Top10 challenges with SoftGrid (and other application virtualization solutions) can be downloaded here: https://www.virtuall.nl/seminars/BriForum2008/BriForum08Top10challengeswithSGandOthers.pdf. Shawn Bass was also heavily involved in creating and presenting this session.
