After lurking in the shadow of it's codename for several months Silverlight has finally been announced and folks are talking about it.

So, what is it?

Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications (RIAs) for the Web.

Since joining Microsoft most of what I've been doing has been related to Silverlight - learning it, talking to customers about it, and helping to prepare material for the NAB and MIX launches .... it's very exciting, and we've only seen the very beginnings of what's in store!
