Lately there has been a lot of buzz speculating on the future of the web including HTML 5, Silverlight, and other web technologies. Brad Becker, Director of Product management at Microsoft, has posted some valuable insight into the value of Silverlight and the role it does and will play in the web (including where it and HTML 5 will play key roles).

I highly recommend that anyone considering the future of web technologies go check out the article and leave your comments on the site. For those who are more visual/auditory, Brad also has linked to a video where he presents more about the role of Silverlight at this link.
