YouTube using Silverlight
WOW. This little sliver of news from MIX09 this week slipped by me. YouTube are streaming March Madness live using Silverlight . If you don’t know what March Madness is, don’t worry (strangely I knew…) but that’s not the news. The news is this isn’t being delivered in Flash. The quality is stunning....

WPG does Silverlight
I’ve been critical of a few teams at Microsoft for not using Silverlight on their websites but the tide is turning. Great to see our Worldwide Partner Group using Silverlight for their Digital WPC site this week. The Presspass site has added some very nice video elements to their site using Silverlight...

Nokia and Microsoft get cozy
Who'da thunk it - Microsoft and Nokia . Back when I worked in mobile there would have been snow on the sun for this to happen but in this brave new world, it doesn't seem so strange. Scoble still pops out the money quote though: The only thing that would be more shocking is if Steve...
