For the designer in you...
I’ve been getting a lot of mails off late asking about Expression trainings, downloads etc. Expression Blend is the new Microsoft Designer tool! It’s part of the greater, Expression Suite of Products.
In fact I’ll be talking about Expression and Silverlight in my MSDN sessions next quarter.
