Testing Out Flickr Blogging…

I’m trying to see if you can blog multiple images in a single blog post from Flickr. So far, no luck. If I do figure it out I’ll be sure to post.

It looks like I’m going to have to build my own solution to blog multiple pictures. It would be very nice if you could blog an entire set. Each picture in that set blogged in one post. Maybe I’ll put that up to Flickr. They’re always adding new features.

The Color NodeTree

Here is my last minute entry into the MIX09 10K Contest.

It’s a standard spring loaded Node Tree, but the cool part is that each node has a random color value. As the nodes get close to each other they give off their color. You can click on any of the nodes to change the color or turn Popping on to have the computer do it for you.

We’ll see what the community thinks!

This is my first Silverlight 2.0 project, but I have done a lot of work with WPF. And I have to say that the upgrades from Silverlight 1.0 to Silverlight 2.0 are night and day. I can imagine creating this exact same effect in Silverlight 1 would have taken much more than 10k and would have run slower, and not looked nearly as cool.

Considering the announcement of Silverlight 3.0 at MIX09 this year. I’m pretty excited to see what they are going to add. I’m praying for Text Anti-Aliasing and Video with Alpha Channel. If I get those two, Silverlight 3.0 will really give Flash a run for my development time.

See you at MIX!
