Us too. (There's a link to the PDF white paper on that site).
That's why at the SharePoint Technology Conference, we'll be presenting several classes on optimizing SharePoint ... for performance, for search engine optimization, and for information security. So, if figuring out how to get the most out of your SharePoint installation is important to you at this point, be sure to schedule time for these sessions. You can find them in the conference catalog on the conference Web site.

BTW, THE EXTREME EARLY-BIRD REGISTRATION PERIOD FOR THE CONFERENCE ENDS OCT. 17, SO IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO GO, GET YOUR FORMS IN BEFORE FRIDAY!
And, there's yet another author on the faculty: I got a note from Dux Raymond Sy, a project management guru, to inform me he's writing a book called "SharePoint for Project Management," to be published by O'Reilly. It's targeted for release this month. Dux is presenting on the subject at SPTechCon.

I just learned that Bjorn Furuknap, who will present a full-day workshop at SPTechCon on customizing the SharePoint user experience, is working on a new book. It's called, not surprisingly, "Building the SharePoint User Experience." He's already fired off the first chapter to the publisher, and says initial feedback has been quite positive. We'll look out for it when it's published; in the meantime, he's set up a Web site with a lot more information. Bjorn says much of his session is based on the information he's putting into the book, so it should be quite detailed.

It appears that SharePoint MVP notifications have gone out this week, and another of our speakers, Jason Medero of B&R Solutions in New Jersey, has retained the distinction for 2009. Congratulations, Jason! Here's what he had to say about that in his blog.
