I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

What do you get when you take Live Search's API and spread a heaping of Siverlight on top? You get one really engaging search engine! Introducing "Tafiti." The name means "to search" in Swahili.
This is a sample visual mashup of what can be done when we take the nextgen UX tools available to us and visualize data in a different way. Before you ask, no Tafiti is not an actual product. It is intended to show what you can do with nextgen search... this is only the tip of the iceberg!
More details, including a review, can be found here. Check out Tafiti today!
Mark the date, there are two local MSDN Roadshow stops coming up! Content will include Silverlight and Expression Web hands on demos.
If you have not checked out these products yet, and would like some exposure to them you should definitely attend. MSDN Roadshows are hosted at your local Microsoft office and are free of charge! They are also a great way to get to know other developers in the area and your local Microsoft folks.

Man, I have been waiting for this!
All the info and links to files/source can be found here off of Codeplex. Requires Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 - download links here.
The always amazing ScottGu has a write up about it on his blog, along with examples. Check it out here.
First Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 bits go live and now Silverlight (both 1.0 RC1 and a 1.1 refresh). Looks like I will be having some fun this weekend. =)
Download them here (both Windows and Mac).
