Here's a draft with the links fixed:)

Windows Live just shipped a beta of our Messenger Connect platform. The
platform uses OAuth WRAP (among other
and a new consent
enable third party websites to access a user’s Windows Live data. Some
the data that Messenger Connect beta will give third party websites access
to is: contacts, activity streams, calendar, and photos. Messenger Connect
will also support sign-up and sign-in with a Windows Live ID and chat
through web messenger on the third party site.

For more information, read our blog
the release, and check out the
documentation <>. If
you want to try it out, here are the
how to sign up for the Messenger Connect beta and get access to the
libraries. We’d love to hear your feedback through the forums, e-mail, etc.
