as someone who has been an MSDN developer for many many years, I can 
tell you that there is much to enjoy on Channel 9, but little that is 
useful in your day to day work.  It is mainly developer propogada (fun 
stuff admittedly).

Channel 9's purpose is to build trust in Microsoft - they used to state 
this right on the site - came from a fear of flying analogy

people were so afraid of microsoft that MS had to do this

some education - i guess you could say late night infomercials are also 
educational ;)

as to more toding this: I imagine more will - it's clearly working
