New Screencast Show on WPF and Expression

The first show of a potentially great new series on WPF and Expression has just hit the wires. Andrew and Dax are going to do a series of screencasts covering the use of .NET Framework 3.0 presentation technologies over the next few months. In this first episode, they use Expression Blend to bind a Flickr RSS feed to a WPF application. This looks like a very promising series...

One small piece of constructive criticism - I'm not hugely enamored of the way the WMV files are compressed with a utility that requires admin rights to open it. Judging from their website, it looks like you should be able to extract the movie with WinRAR as an alternative. Maybe they'll switch to something simple and ubiquitous like zip moving forward... (hint, hint!)
