Microsoft Silverlight named after David Silverlight

Reporting the release to the public of MS Silverlight (codename WPF/E) I was wondering if that product has been named after David Silverlight, creator of many community websites like Community Credit.

I heard that Microsoft has just started an extremely high reward system for very active community leaders, and that WPF/E is the first reward issued with that system.

David is reporting a conversation he had with Bill Gates: To be honest, I didn't really believe him when told me about actually meeting Bill Gates a few months back to discuss some really high honor, but anyway it's a awesome honor for a community developer to have a real product named after him.

Congratulations David!!! 

PS. Now I know why you couldn't tell me about those 4 days you spent in Seattle after the MVP Summit last month.
