Moving away from JavaScript today, but not the web, I have a list of some alternative .NET projects for delivering web based content.

Service Stack
Thoughtfully architected, obscenely fast, thoroughly enjoyable web services for all. Tooling to augment or replace ASP.NET MVC or WCF for various web related tasks.

A lightweight framework for building HTTP based services, inspired by Sinatra (hence the name)

Frictionless development for ASP.NET MVC single page web apps. Prototypical and dynamic capabilities brought to C#. Watch some of the videos (the first one is a nice example of a smooth development workflow).

A light-weight, dynamic data access component for C# 4.0. If you want a simple way to get at data stored in a wide variety of relational and nosql sources, then take a look.
