In this week's interview Larry interviews Eric Willeke, an Architect with Inkubook.  Inkubook is a start-up that allows users to self publish photo books.  Inkubook picked the Silverlight platform to launch their new venture.  Eric recently did a presentation to the Indianapolis .Net User Group (IndyNDA) on their experiences with adopting Silverlight this podcast is a sort of replay of that presentation.  Eric shares the good, bad and ugly of adopting Silverlight 2 before it was in Beta!.

"Spot on" comments from Eric-I ran into many similar issues back in February with Silverlight-some of which were solved by moving to WPF instead.

Ok, I commented on the wrong podcast. I was referring to #43: Darrin's Laptop rig with external hard drive (picture).
