I added a webslice in my BE.N website at http://www.romanclarkson.us. I have a blog post about it. It was easy to do. Because it is browers dependent I expect that someone will write an extension for it.

BTW: The webslice is only for the first post rendered on the page.

the good news is that WebSlices are already being implemented for Firefox (and the Me.dium plug-in also has an implementation) - because they build on existing microformat standards there shouldn't be any compatability issues for once ;)

@rclarkson - like the sample on your page.

I've added something similar to http://blog.offbeatmammal.com but using the blog:RecentPosts control.
Of course that doesn't look very pretty so I posted this request http://www.codeplex.com/blogengine/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=24368 for "help" to get a more stylable/useful RecentPosts block ...
