While things were slowing down at work, MIX 08 was starting up. I wish I could have attended but unfortunately my job takes precedence. I've been reading blog posts about MIX 08 and it sounds like it was a great time for Silverlight 2! The more I read about Silverlight 2 the more it sounded like Microsoft has finally got the ball on the road. This project (the amoeba project) was originally designed to be a Silverlight app. After digging into Silverlight 1.1, the feature set was not there yet to support our overall idea.
