2008 Hello From São Paulo
I am in Brazil, my 5th visit here. I arrived in São Paulo a few hours ago for a full week of events here in São Paulo, and also in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro. For the next 4 days it'll be non-stop customer meetings, partner visits, press interviews, and three public Flex 3 / AIR presentations. It's great to be back here!

2008 What Would You Want From ColdFusion Microsoft SharePoint Integration?
Back in late 2005 I asked What Would You Want From ColdFusion Microsoft Exchange Integration?. That post generated over 100 comments, and the ideas and suggestions and use cases in that thread were in a large part responsible for the powerful and sophisticated Exchange integration tags in ColdFusion 8.
So, I'd like your input again. We've been hearing some rumblings about Microsoft SharePoint and integration with ColdFusion, and I'd like you to weigh in on this idea. Are you a SharePoint user, or is it used anywhere in your organization? If yes, what is it being used for? And do you see any value in ColdFusion SharePoint integration? What type of integration would you like, and how would you use it? As before, I am less interested in simple "yes please" or "no, but you should support x instead" comments. I need specifics, and the more detail the better.
And no, I am not promising features. This is a brainstorming exercise for now. ;-)
