AOL shows awesome mail app written in Silverlight at Mix '08

The first team I joined at AOL was the client mail team. That team and the awesomely talented engineers there have been working with Microsoft to build an extremely powerful version of AOL's webmail product that uses a lot of intelligent caching and rich UI dynamics to bring a fresh new look to what is traditionally a very boring experience (mail in general).

Here's an interview with Roy Ben-Yoseph and Eric Hoffman about their experience in building the app. Eric was my manager on the client mail team, it's awesome to see what they were able to create in just a few months!

Congratulations Eric and Roy!

(AHA! And you were surreptitiously asked to install Silverlight on your machine too!)
