On Sunday, May 6th, Carl went to Washington, DC for a Fly-In at the Association for Competitive Technology (ACT) for the purpose of talking to Senators and Representatives about issues around technology. He also talked to many of the developers and IT people who were attending these meetings, some of whom are regulars on .NET Rocks! This is a very special .NET Rocks! We hope you enjoy it.
After years of software development, Carl Franklin started .NET Rocks! in 2002 inspired by Public Radio infotainment shows like Car Talk. Before that he taught his own hands-on .NET classes for Franklins.Net. He is a Microsoft Regional Director and Most Valuable Professional.

He authored a few of the MIDI files that came with it.
