I stumbled across Ayende's site in February looking for an NHibernate UI. His NHibernate Query Analyzer's pretty nice - check out the Flash demo. I was blown away by Ayende's blog, though, and it's been one of my favorites since then.
As promised, WMP 11 Beta is available for public download here. It was leaked a few days ago, but this is the official Microsoft release.
What struck me is that this is the default version on the WMP download page. Normally MS is a bit more cautious with Beta releases - they're available, but never the default. I'm a beta junkie, so this doesn't worry me at all, but it's an interesting shift in MS's generally cautious release approach. Keeping up with the Joneses?
I e-mailed the DotNetRocks guys a few months ago about Kim Cameron, they guy behind Microsoft's new Identity initiative. They interviewed him on DotNetRocks Episode 176 (4/25/06) and read my e-mail about the show on episode 177. Bottom line - my e-mail prompted the interview. Cool!
