  • Blog Post: Created Virtual Earth Collections Block in Popfly

    I like using the collections feature in Live Search Maps where I can keep collections of locations. One of the activities that I wanted to do was share a collection on my blog as an embedded map.

  • Blog Post: Having Fun with Popfly

    I'm having a blast with Popfly, Microsoft's Silverlight-based mash-up designers. I've created a block that uses AOL Video Search and made a simple page that shows the results of what it does. I fell as if I'm just scratching the surface of something really cool! The mashup below creates a bar graph that...
