On the Silverlight front I've managed to watch a few more Mix sessions and even though I still have been harping on this week about the need for reach and search engine optimisation I saw a mention of persistent links within Silverlight so I'll be looking at that to see how that can be used.
Links that have caught my interest this week are:
