They use accurate mediums to publish informations - a blog. Every participant - including Microsoft chairman Bill Gates - has been asked to post at least once, according to this article.
This afternoon, I followed the discussion about Web 2.0 with Leaders from Microsoft, Flickr, Nike, Fortune and more. The topic aimed less about technique and more about participation, community, sharing, individualization of content and services.... order your individual, unique styled Nike-Shoes... Customize your desktop and web... just be a part of it.
Web 2.0 is everywhere. And Web 3.0 is already on its way....
Update 2007 (WEF): Beyond Web 2.0 -- From Content to Collective Knowledge?
While social networks and community-oriented interactive sites, known as Web 2.0, continue to gain pace, the advent of Web 3.0 is already taking shape. In this Update, panellists (WEF) will discuss how a fundamental, technology-enabled "semantic Web" could develop over the coming four to five years, driven by hyper personalization coupled with advances in meta tagging and search, revolutionizing the way the knowledge is shared.
Hope, I will find the according WEF potcast.
WEF - Please don't mix it with Wresting Entertainement Federation :-)

ASP.NET developers may wish to use the Microsoft Anti-Cross Site Scripting Library to encode output. This library differs from other encoding libraries in that it uses the principle of inclusions and provides a high degree of protection against XSS attacks.

WPF/E does not even contain a Textbox control at the moment. It is in a really early stage. So don't be disappointed. According to this thread, Microsoft is working on adding basic control (TextBox, Checkbox, ...) in the next CTP. Then we're getting closer to business needs.
In the meantime, Tony Lombardo from Infragistics did realize a cool combo (WPF/E and MS AJAX) - a "WPF/E Textbox". Take a look. An enthralling technical chat about WPF and WPF/E to gain insights:

The Windows Task Scheduler is accessible thru a COM interface, but the .NET Framework does not offer any native wrapper for it. :-(
Dennis Austin built an excellent .NET wrapper for the Scheduler, including Source Code, MSDN Style Help and Demo Client. Wow, R-E-S-P-E-C-T !
I was able to build an ASP.NET 2.0 Application to list, add, edit and remove tasks to the scheduler - in no time! Thanks, Dennis - your my programmer of the Week

Since Ajax Web applications exist on both the client and the server, they include the following security issues:
- Create a larger attack surface with many more inputs to secure
- Expose internal functions of the Web application server
- Allow a client-side script to access third-party resources with no builtin security mechanisms
AJAX implementations require a trust relationship between the client and server — a relationship that can be exploited by an attacker...

Based on AJAX Core, we get the ASP.NET AJAX Toolkit, an Add-On to create AJAX Controls and AJAX Extenders. The Toolkit is set-up as "Shared Source" bringing Microsoft and the Community together - working on fancy, attractive Controls for everybody.

So I downloaded the latest AJAX Control Toolkit Bits from Codeplex and installed the VS-Templates as well.
But, no sample code was working on my machine (VISTA, VS.NET 2005 SP1, IE7 and FF2)!
I've got always the following Script-Error: "Sys is undefined" (Sys is one of the major "classes" of the MS AJAX Library). It seems, that the browser is not able to detect the Script-Library, where this object is located.
I've checked the references to the AjaxToolkit.dll, did all the config mentioned in this thread (http://forums.asp.net/1516718/ShowThread.aspx) - no success.
If you google for "Sys is undefined" "AJAX" you will find loads of post about this problems. Seems to exist since ages...
At least, when I'm running the sample on a Windows XP (with IE7), everything work as expected. --> expected means correct!! :-)
