These postings are not intended to be tutorials; they are a real-time exploration of the boundaries of what we already know in the context of building a design to finish application.

I apologize for the continued media failure -- the media folks are working hard to fix it. For now, please consider downloading the .wmv file and watching it locally. Should be fixed RSN

Thanks for posting this and for staying on top of the video problem (any chance we can use a different image??) And thanks most of all for your incredible (and i mean the word literally) effort in putting together Firestarter -- it was a blast.
@Mazric: These are great suggestions. We've been letting the design evolve, to some degree, but things are firming up and we'll be sure to provide more of a road map in coming episodes.

We hope to post approximately weekly, and I honestly don't know how many episodes. If the interest remains high, my expectation is that we'll continue these through the entire project.
Actually my intent was not to suggest that writing for the phone is the same as writing for the PC; they are very different platforms (see, for example, my discussion of TransMedia). I was only demonstrating that many of the coding skills you have as a Silverlight programmer will carry over, making the learning curve a good bit flatter. Some programs will no doubt work well virtually as is on both platforms, but as more than one person has noted, size matters, and a phone ain't a computer
