About Joe Stegman's WebBlog

I'm a group program manager on the Silverlight presentation and graphics team and the focus of my blog will be to answer questions and provide general information on Silverlight.  Silverlight is a cross-platform, cross-browser plug-in for building the next generation of Media Experiences and Rich Interactive Applications.  Silverlight has a friction-free web install with a small download size.  Silverlight supports programmability through JavaScript for tight browser integration as well as a .NET programming model for synergy with Microsoft developers.
