The September episode of The Screening Room, with J.J. Allaire and Jack Ozzie, introduces Windows Live Writer, discusses Live Writer plugins, and illustrates how the plugin architecture is being used to add support for microformats and Live Clipboard.
There's quite a bit going on in this half-hour screencast. Live Writer is both a .NET-based WYSIWYG editor for blog posts and a prototype for the integration of microformats and Live Clipboard across a range of Microsoft products and services. Live Writer itself may or may not appeal to you as a blog authoring tool, but if you're curious about how Ray Ozzie's wiring the web strategy will play out, you'll want to see and think about the end-to-end linkup between Live Writer and Eventful that's shown here.
