A new way to see photos

Sometime last year (I think), Microsoft unveiled its Flash competitor, Silverlight.  When version 2.0 came out sometime recently, it brought with it Deep Zoom.  I won’t give any more details about it, but it lets you create fun ways to present photos (read more about it by clicking here).  Well, a developer came up with a web-based viewer where anyone can create a Deep Zoom implementation using Flickr photos.  Here are my beach photos:

Get Microsoft Silverlight

If you don’t already have Silverlight installed, just click the link.  It’s a quick and small installation, and you’ll be doing yourself a favor.  I’m not sure I’ll be using this all that much, but I figured it was worth sharing.

And that’s all until I get back.  Europe: here I come!

Update: I’m not sure what happened here, but even on a computer with Silverlight installed, this didn’t work.  Oh well.  It looked cool when I was building it.
