As I've mentioned before, there is a big event coming up in January that has developers donating their time to benefit local charities.  The event is called We Are Microsoft and is put on by Microsoft (care of Chris Koenig) and is being run by Toi Wright.  I had a chance to catch up with Toi at the Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest last night, and ask her about the event.  Here is that chat.
