Congratulations to Martin Grayson and team for building one of the smartest Silverlight 2 demonstrations I've seen to date. I saw parts of this demo a month ago when I was in the UK, and I'm delighted it's now released.
Whether or not you're involved in the healthcare sector, this demo does a great job of showing how Silverlight 2 can transform web-based application development. We're already starting to see many real-world applications using Silverlight 2, even in its beta 1 stage; I'll post a list of the best ones I've collected before the end of the week. With a beta 2 release not far away, momentum is continuing to grow. And keep an eye on this blog first thing Friday morning for a separate exciting announcement (he said elusively)...
The demo shows patient charts using Deep Zoom, which implies that Deep Zoom content can be created programatically (rather than by hand in DZ Composer). Is that actually the case?
Sure! Check out the SparseImageTool.exe command-line utility in the DZ Composer directory, for example. We'll come out with less clunky solutions than shelling out to a command-line process over time, of course.
Trying to get in a habit of doing these when I get up and before getting into work. Design Patterns/DI
Max: If it helps, I published a sample on my blog about using the SparseImageTool...check it out! :)
Thanks Giorgio and Tim, that's going to be very handy.
Very impressive, silverlight is looking better and better

This is going to be a long night. Now is that Pacific time or Eastern time or UK Time? :-)
Great app! IE uses 418,000KB RAM for this. Hmmm.
What happened to Friday morning news?
Sorry to keep you on your toes, Ben - we delayed our plans slightly. Now aiming for Monday morning...

No problem Sir!
Thanks for the reply.
Check out my thoughts on how I think Silverlight 2.0 is part of a clever strategy to get a subscription-based Windows Live PC on Macs and other devices.
Does it make any sense? :)
Without seeing the code behind and since I do not have a working knowledge of Silverlight may I ask, are those web parts I see within the canvas?
I was wondering when we'd see something like this app.
The medical profession should like this!
