Interview with Sean Corfield

I thought it would be fun, and informative to conduct some interviews with web developers on my blog. I'm starting off with someone that most of my blog readers probably already know, and many have probably even had a beer with - Sean Corfield.

Neat AJAX SQL Designer

one of my coworkers sent me this link today, haven't had a ton of time to play with it but looks pretty sweet.
