The "they" in this case was Fernando and I ;-) and we were meaning to
email the list about this today, but you beat us to it.  We have been
working with Microsoft for the last month or so to work out the
details of deploying the notebook to Azure.  We worked with them to
write the documentation and up at the top (it is not obvious) there is
even a nice screencast that Fernando did showing how all of it works.
They have been very cooperative and helpful and we feel like this is
some nice visibility for the project in a somewhat different context
than usual.  We are actually quite impressed with how easy everything
was - Azure has come a long way for sure!
