Thanks for everyone's comments. Blueprints can be useful for develoeprs large and small. We are going to publish a collection of Blueprints, which will include source, which you can use/modify to suit your own needs.
The video makes it sound interesting, but the buzz-word filled web-site just makes me want to run a mile ... I won't explain I'll just post the opening page:

Who is this web-site aimed at? Seriously?
The site is targeted toward independent developers who need all the help they can get, both technical and non-technical, to take advantage of all the opportunity that a major operating system release like Windows Vista and (formerly WinFX now .Net 3.0) presents.
Workflow-based guidance is step-by-step instructions on how to do everything from get started with WPF to write and publish a press release.
The content is delivered in "packages" that are downloaded via RSS using the enclosure technology that has enabled podcasting. So you might think of this as podcasting software.
The "factory" is the infrastructure that enables both the downloading of the packages, injection of the workflow and content into your solution and the dynamic extension of Visual Studio.
Please say more about why you think the bold bits are bull.
