More Monad NewsZef Hemel takes a first look at Monad and captures some of its chunky, nutty goodness. Note to Zef: You should WriteObject("Hello World"); in BeginProcessing(), not ProcessRecord().
You can also watch Jeffrey Snover, our architect, discuss Monad in this Channel 9 video. It is the coolest thing, and the enthusiasm you see from Jeffrey is shared by everyone on the team. It's why I came back to Microsoft.
(The drinking game for this video is: sip every time the process list is used in an example, chug on Spinal Tap reference.)
To sign up for Monad, got to Microsoft betaplace, sign in (you need a Passport account), and use "mshPDC" as the guest ID. Among the benefits (besides getting Monad) is you get to participate in a private discussion forum which is monitored and answered by members of the Monad team, including yours truly.

The Hello World example was taken from the samples directory that came with the Monad preview. Don't blame me, blame Microsoft. ;)

I just figured out you work on Monad, cool :) But apparantly, there's an error in your Hello World sample ;)

Yes, we need to clarify the samples. Noted!
