Thanks to some help from SQL MVP Adam Mechanic, the Extended Events blog is now being cross posted on SQLblog.com. Except for the first two posts (welcome message & Reading event data 101), these blogs will be identical so read whichever site you prefer, either the SQLblog version, or the original MSDN blog.
