Information doesn’t have to suck, and it shouldn’t be a chore. Beautiful information is when one sentence makes you want to read the next. In the age of insight, the right information and “ah-has” is a powerful thing. If you think of information as a continuum, flowing from data to information to knowledge to insight to wisdom … that’s a mighty wide playing field to practice the art of making your point. Here are ten ways I’ve learned to help you simplify information and make it more useful: Add a One-Liner Key Take Away. This
is my favorite trick for simplifying slides. If a slide has too much stuff on it and the point is not clear, a quick fix is to add a one-liner to the bottom that makes the point. Once you have the one-liner take away, it’s easier then to go back and overhaul the slide. You can use one-liners in more than just slides.

I picked up a book that looks very interesting: Microsoft Silverlight 5 and Windows Azure Enterprise Integration
A bit of a mouthful, but the table of contents looks very good. There are a lot of Silverlight books out there, but few that actually focus on all the other stuff you need to know outside the boundary of your client application - the hosting, services, and deployment to Windows Azure.
