From Jeff's blog:
just recently updated the navigation on my blog (http://www.jeffblankenburg.com) to be a nice Silverlight control, and realized that I was not really providing an optimal experience for those people that don't have the plugin installed. So since I had to go through it, I thought I would share with you how simple this actually is.
As the creator of Virtual World Evangelism, I thought it would be a good idea to take a break and have a good laugh muahhaha

Hey folks just wanted to give you all an update on the book as I’ve had tons of people asking. The original plan was to have it out by May 15th but due to some formatting changes we have moved the date to June. I think it is safe to say it will be out before June 15th. All the material has gone through final review and is just being formatted at this point. Several hundred copies have already been sold in advance—which is awesome! I’ll keep it short and just say “Thanks!” to everyone who has been supportive throughout this process as we get the book done.
Just got this and thought I would share:
The link to the Silverlight 2 installer to use is http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=124807. This link will detect your operating system and download the proper installer for Mac or Windows. In addition, requests for the Silverlight 1 installer will now install Silverlight 2, except for MacPPC machines which will still get the Mac version of Silverlight 1. Silverlight 2 is backward compatible with Silverlight 1 and no changes are required to Silverlight 1 sites.

Building applications that are easy to use, visually appealing, and offer high performance is a challenge that developers face every day. Innovative applications can greatly improve the user experience, empowering companies to differentiate their services and solutions. However, developers are increasingly asked to do more in less time, while also optimizing the power and performance requirements of their applications. The Windows 7 platform makes it easy for developers to create engaging, user-friendly applications by providing familiar tools and rich development features that allow them to take advantage of the latest PC capabilities. In this session we will explore the new Taskbar and Jump Lists, the Scenic Ribbon, file management with Libraries, and Windows Web Services among many other enhancements to the new operating system.In this session we’ll show you:- New Features in Windows 7- Use and create jump lists- Scenic Ribbon API- Use and create Libraries- Windows Web Services API- Additional enhancements that support development
