The Web Futures panel is happening in the morning Tuesday, 2nd September. Here's a description with links to the sites for each participant in the panel:
If you are interested in where the web is going, we will be hosting a Web Futures panel at Tech Ed this year. This panel will be comprised of Scott Hanselman, Nigel Parker, Jonas Follesø and Trent Mankelow. I’m [Darryl Burling] interested in taking questions for the panel discussion, so if you have a question that you’d like to ask the panel, please drop me a line with your question.
