      Hi Bob, Blaine;

      Thanks for the video. As you have more videos, could you please list them on the Codeplex site till you get your official sites?

      Couple of questions:
      a) We should be seeing the early bits of SL3 [hopefully] soon, and I'm planning to use SL3 for some new projects. How soon do you think you'll bring Prsim 2 to SL3?

      b) SL is more and more moving towards of becoming a better contender for providing LoB (Line of Business) applications, and that's one of the reason for me moving on to SL3. Does Prism 2 guidelines for developing Database driven applications?

      Good feedback on creating a page that lists the videos. We will create a page on either Codeplex or MSDN that lists the videos.

      a) We will look at providing SL3 in a version that should ship sometime in fall 2009. We will start the project this summer. So stay tuned to my blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/blaine.

      b) We did not cover database driven applications in Prism 2.0. What type of guidelines are you looking for? Depending on what you are looking for we may cover it in a future version of Prism or it may be another deliverable from patterns & practices.

      Thanks for questions.

      I'd like to see the documentation released as both a CHM and word doc.  There is so much information to try to digest that I would like to add my own highlighting and comments.
