The official name as well as site is now out for Silverlight, which used to be called WPF/E. Lookin' good!
I'm a Slashdot browser. I've never commented on anything thing and never will. Slashdot is 90% crap (mostly because of the comments left there). That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. That said, it's good to watch what goes on there, because every once and a while there is a gem of great insight.
This isn't the kind of gem I'm referring to, but it is still a gem and TOO GOOD and TOO TRUE to pass up. My buddy Tobin pointed me to this one…
I'm not a big fan of bashing people…unless they deserve it. 🙂
I have to jump in with everyone else. Me too, me too! 😀
In the coming months you will see our platform pushed to Channel 9 and 10 and we use ASP.NET AJAX heavily. Hopefully I'll have time to work up some samples from our code to share.
Keep checking back for more. We've got a lot of great stuff lined up! 🙂
I've been playing around with XNA a little bit in my free time. It's pretty darn easy to build a simple game with. You can debug it from your Windows machine while running on your Xbox 360, all good stuff!
Be sure to check out the XNA content on Channel 9 too.
P.S. Don't mind the typo on Learn XNA. "not" should be "now". 😉
Awesome stuff. Check it out! 🙂

I turned on my 360 today to find all kinds of cool new ways for me to spend some points. 😉 It's pretty fabulous. They've got shows for bunches of major networks, movies (old & new), etc.
I'm downloading THX 1138 (still haven't seen it and I feel ashamed as a George Lucas fan). I love that they have entire seasons of shows. What I'm disappointed in though is the fact that the only TV shows they have in HD are all the CBS shows. So if you wanted to watch the latest Studio 60 episode in HD you're out of luck. Hopefully this will change in the future. Overall I'm loving this though! I'm going to need a bigger hard drive soon. 😉
