The next item in this series is the drupal popular content block. You can see this block on the right hand side titled 'Popular content' that lists my sites popular content of all time. The current block actually uses the views (version 2) module to display the content, but this information ultimately comes from drupals core statistics module. The information will be hosted in a custom silverlight control that I have created that simply sends requests to my custom drupal module and displays the data that it receives. I have broken down each part into their own section.
