Since last couple of months I, along with my wonderful team including Todd, Vivek, Meeta and Ritu had been working with Tony on rebuilding the Microsoft's SharePoint web site.
The web site went live last month : http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint . . . .
and now, there is also a 'How we did it' article on MSDN describing goals and technicals details of how we developed all the pieces and fitted it together.
