Yesterday, Microsoft and the New York Times released a New York Times Silverlight Kit (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/NYTimesSilverlight) at the Enterprise Developer Conference in NYC. The kit makes it easier for designers and developers to use REST services to enhance their applications, with little to no coding needed.
