This post won't make much sense as this is just a reminder to myself.
Over the next few weeks, I want to spend sometime looking at MapReduce and how it can be applied with Windows Azure (big thanks to Gary Short for mentioning this).
I also want to look at how BigTable compares to Windows Azure Table Storage Services, and finally i want to look into Hadoop.
Sorry this is just a list of things I want to look at, but I will expand out on this later
I'm also wondering how this can relate to Silverlight. Perhaps you could have multiple Silverlight Nodes running with MapReduce talking back to Windows Azure (via a proxy web service), as well as queues and worker roles
