Microsoft and Web 2.0 Resources

Thanks to the folks at Lexis Nexis who attended my talk on “Microsoft and Web 2.0” today.  I went through quite a bit of material around Windows Live, the Live Platform, Silverlight, and newer technologies like DeepZoom, PhotoSynth, Live Mesh, SQL Server Data Services, and BizTalk Services.

You can find the deck I used on my Windows Live SkyDrive

Sorry, the webcast is not generally available to the public.  However, there are tons of links that I showed off today as examples of Microsoft’s investments in the next generation web, and a lot of great examples of how to couple technologies like Silverlight with backend services in the Live Platform.
