Most people consider Windows Communication Foundation ( WCF ) as a great framework for communicating between applications using the open standard WS-* protocol. I am not sure that many realize the high quality support that WCF (in .NET Framework 3.5) provides for building REST based interfaces too.

Vittorio just blogged about a session at Mix this year, where guys from MySpace are going to talk about how they created their social APIs for MySpace using WCF. He has been working with MySpace and the WCF team for the last few months, specifically on how to leverage these web capabilities. Here is the result.
