I've just finished watching the recorded session from MIX and the web API looks very good. I'm just wondering what is the best practice for using this API in a smart client application, specifically one written with WPF. There was a mention early in the session about using the API to create a multiplayer game, where the game moves are sent as hidden messages and the users can also chat to each other, but this was not expanded upon. This is basically what I want to do with a WPF application. One instance of the application will be the "server", that other instances connect with using the Messenger network to handle signing on and message delivery. This would be a great way of creating a client-server like environment without the end user having to worry about setting up machines.
