Maybe Knot

From http://astoria.mslivelabs.com/...

The goal of Microsoft Codename Astoria is to enable applications to expose data as a data service that can be consumed by web clients within a corporate network and across the internet. The data service is reachable over HTTP, and URIs are used to identify the various pieces of information available through the service.
But, em, er, to find out more about Microsoft's "data service... reachable over HTTP" you are expected to download several Microsoft Word documents.

Bzzzt. Next?

"Yeah, building web pages is so hard, this web stuff is incredibly difficult, we need to publish DOC files. Maybe when the whole world uses our own proprietary extensions, things will be easier for us!"

...Patrick Logan is less impressed and doesn't even download the word document...
