Rob "Subsonic" Conery just joined Microsoft, and will make (more or less) Subsonic a high-level API on top of the MVC framework Phil Haack is the PM for.
Seems like MS is hiring the cream of the US based .NET bloggers lately: are they kind of endorsing their contribution to the .NET space or just assimilating them? "Ai posteri l'ardua sentenza" (cit.).
For the moment I just uber-happy for Rob and Phil, and for all of us .NET developer as whole: they will sure come up with something great.
