I have been busy with my work @ Microsoft.  Just in case you have not hear of what I am working on.  My team is responsible for the new forums that Expressions is using.  http://forums.expression.microsoft.com/en/forums  Try it out and let us know what you think.  A future feature that I am working on is the ability for you to consume data from the forums through a web service using WCF.  In the past few weeks, I have been playing around with WCF quite a bit, with traditional ASP.NET, Silverlight 2.0 and with Ajax implementation.  I will as I go along update you with how some of these feature work and some tips.
