OK, so I am changing bits of my personal challenge slightly. I am going to look beyond the MS certs for some coding ideas and also to hold off on building my own personal website system until I have a much stronger grasp on things that already exist so I don't reinvent the whole wheel. So, modifications to my personal challenge begin now and go here:

Books
Head First Design Patterns (Currently Reading) {edit} Here is Justice's review of the book.
Professional XNA Game Programming for XBox 360
Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
MCTS Exam 70-536 Study Guide (.NET 2 - Application Development Foundation) Training Kit

Software Studies
Review the CMS design for DotNetNuke, PostNuke and PHPNuke to garner ideas
Learn Community Server
Learn how to write plugins and controls for DNN and Community Server
Write at least one application plugin for Facebook (although it has to be PHP-based, I think, I am addicted... contact me to find out my Facebook login)

Technologies To Learn
Windows Presentation Foundation
Silverlight
XNA
CMS Design

So, a modification, but things that are somewhat different. But probably useful to me at work (CMS stuff) as well as some items that are just for fun (XNA, Silverlight).

I still don't know who to challenge... Trying to think of who has a blog so that I can properly do a challenge...

{edit} The reason my challenge changed (which was asked via email) was because of my experience at DevTeach Montreal, which got me more excited about coding again than I have been in a long time. To that end, I have given myself a more geeky challenge than I had before.
