I’m personal subscribed to over 100 blogs but only a few podcast and VerySpatial is on of them. I’m really interested in podcasting and hope to have some time to explorer it some more. Maybe the first step is getting an iPod, I’ve wanted justification for the purchase but can’t bring myself to spending that kind of money on a portable music player. My $50 sport-style MP3 player does just fine when I’m working out at the YMCA here in town.
What podcast would you recommend?

Here's another common EDN question regarding the EDN website.
Question: There was originally discussion about having some content available only to the EDN subscriber on the EDN website. Has that happened?
Answer: There is no “subscribers only” section of the EDN web site. The site is currently open to all, EDN subscribers and non subscribers. There is a login for the forums and comments sections, but this is based on the free ESRI globe login. We are still considering and "EDN only" section in the future, but currently the focus is on the public information of the EDN web site.

In preparation for the ArcGIS Explorer community portal, we would like you to test www.arcgisexplorer.com by clicking on the link. If it doesn't work from behind your organization's firewall, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Test Failed' in the subject. Thank you for your help.

One year ago, the ESRI Developer Network (EDN) was launched by Jack Dangermond at the Business Partner Conference in Palm Springs. That was a big day for me as it took several months of planning and work by a dedicated team to release EDN. The purpose and goals of EDN on day 1 are still true today.
Make ESRI’s developer technology available to developers by reducing the cost and complexity
Fostering and supporting a developer community
Increase developer opportunities with ArcGIS
This first year is just the beginning… I think we have made progress but there is still more that can be done. The upcoming 9.2 release will have many features for developers and the upcoming Developer Summit is the result of your feedback. So if you have suggestions on EDN or developer related stuff, let me know (email@example.com).

... Miner & Miner met with Mississippi Power and other Southern Company employees to discuss how to optimize ArcFM Viewer for ArcGIS Engine with the Redliner ...
This showed up in my Google News search; it's always nice to read about real world examples of ArcGIS Engine solutions.

I just wanted to say that there is a help document in the C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\developer\Documentation folder. For 9.2 we'll support Visual Studio 2005 with even more SDK integration.

The most common Google search that gets people to my blog is “ESRI blog” but I barely make it on page 1 of the results. It’s interesting to see that this search doesn’t return many ESRI employee’s that have blogs.
I haven't read this paper yet but it's on my stack of things I need to read.

Last month on the ESRI Developer Network (EDN), we posted a new download that all ArcGIS and Visual Studio 2003 users should be interested in. The ArcGIS Visual Studio .NET Integration Framework provides a number of commands, wizards, and templates that are available through the Visual Studio .NET IDE to help you create solutions, projects, and classes for ArcGIS customizations more efficiently.
At 9.2 will release a verions of Visual Studio 2005 with even more features and integration.
Q: Are EDN developers allowed to install and use the software on any machine they want regardless of whether it is a desktop/laptop machine or a server?
A: Yes, the developer with the EDN subscription is allowed to install the EDN software on any machine as long as they are the only one using the EDN software for development and testing.
