Silverlight Cream for October 01, 2009 -- #702

First I'd like to congratulate all the returning MVPs, and all the new ones... fun awaits and I hope to see you all at the Summit!

I'd particularly like to call out people I know that have just become Silverlight MVPS. Tim Heuer did a great post with links to everyone, so I won't repeat that.

Bryant Likes -- wow... it's been a well-earned award all the way back to rolling that gear, Bryant :)
Jeff Paries ... if you're not familiar with Jeff, you should be... Jeff is the animation master of Silverlight! ... check out his awesome MIX09 presentation, then go buy his book.
Corey Schuman ... dang, just check out that blog-o-material he's got, and the credentials to back it up
Robby Ingebretsen ... that's just about 'nuff said right there! ... in case you don't know, Robby is the KAXAML man
Rick Barraza ... with all the Silverlight Rick's done and all the posting, this is overdue
Davide Zordan ... lots of good blogging and answering posts...
Ambrose Little ... still a tad embarassed at not recognizing you at the first summit I attended!
Humjin Li ... I'm not familiar with Humjin, but welcome aboard!

Not to forget outgoing Pete Brown and John Papa who are being pulled up into the mother ship :)

And honorable mention goes out to John Skeet .. you'll have to read that post to believe it.



Now... In this Issue: Gavin Wignall, Silverlight Web Services Team, CrocusGirl, Andy Beaulieu, Jared Bienz, Corey Schuman, Bryant Likes, Timmy Kokke, Shawn Wildermuth, and Mark Tucker.
