Silverlight + Entity Framework + Astoria == Crazy?

Url: http://www.silverlightdata.com

I've been digging into the Entity Framework and Astoria and decided to create a quick little mashup of Silverlight and those two technologies.  The result is this little product viewer using the Northwind database:

Atlanta MSDN Event - Astoria and Silverlight

Come see me and Glen Gordon talk at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta about Visual Studio 2008, "Astoria", Entity Framework and Silverlight...and see them working gracefully together!

Expression Blend and Web Now in MSDN Subscription

Url: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/04/...

I've blogged about how short-sighted it seemed that the Expression tools were not going to be available to MSDN Subscribers.  I am glad to report that they have come to their senses! I think it is a great comprimise to include Blend and Web in MSDN.  Expression Design and Video will still require additional licensing outside of MSDN, but they are less developer tools anyway.

MSDN Masquerading Advertising as a "Story"?

Url: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx

Maybe I am being paranoid, but there is a story on the MSDN home page that says, "New Year's Resolution: Create a Fully Distributed Enterprise Application Using DevForce".  Its a direct link to a commercial product. Is this the first time a ad has masqueraded as a MSDN story?  It just seems wrong to me...

Expression and MSDN Subscriptions

Url: http://www.microsoft.com/products/expression/en...

While I like the Expression Studio toolset I am dismayed that these tools will not be available for most developers without the extra expense. It seems at this point that Expression Studio will *NOT* be available as part of MSDN Subscriptions, but instead will require separate purchase options.  It would seem to me that Expression would widen the MSDN subscription base to include designers in organizations and improve early adoption of the tools as it would get them in people's hands faster.
