Jason Allor, dev manager for my team, recently posted about a cool lightweight LINQ parser.  The idea was to make it much easier to create a LINQ provider over any arbitrary data source (a web service, custom business objects, etc).  This makes it much easier to get all the sorting, paging, filtering benefits of RIA Services for any arbitrary data store.    

Check it out, and be sure to subscribe to Jason’s blog as I expect he will have more goodies coming in the future!
