Just be the first commenter to answer this simple question correctly:
Name two new Microsoft technologies that I was excited to write about, here on this blog.
The one condition is, that you can't specifically mention any of the three flagship products that Microsoft launch at Tech-Ed Eilat 2008. Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 are out of the game, on account of being too obvious
Good Luck! –urig
