Good article in Visual Studio Magazine this month on Windows Azure: http://visualstudiomagazine.com/Articles/2010/01/01/App-Dev-from-the-Ground-Up.aspx
Ok, I might be a bit biased -- I get a few mentions in the article that I'm pretty jazzed about 🙂
The quotes are from my session at PDC '09. In case you missed it, you can always catch it here: Tips and Tricks for Using Visual Studio 2010 to Build Applications that Run on Windows Azure
Kathleen, if you read this, thanks for the quotes!
