According to his blog post, here is what he will be attempting to do:

Each blog post will cover a topic in the OData protocol. I will not be covering the implementation of OData using a specific technology like WCF Data Services. These blog post will cover only the protocol itself and I hope to shed new light on the protocol for technologists in the community.
