So much potential!
i cant wait for RSS Enclosures & a "River of News" view.
Great app Doug.
My brothers & sister in EMEA have been busy. They have launched an curious application called UniveRSS.
UniveRSS is a 3D RSS feed reader for Windows Vista. It leverages the Windows Presentation Foundation and provides a stunning way of visualizing RSS feeds and their content. It introduces a full-screen 3D universe where galaxies represent the folders of your RSS feed directory, and the stars are represented by the spinning cubes that hold the feed information. Size and position of the feed cubes indicate how many unread items they contain.
It installs as a click-once application, which is a nice touch.
Give it a try - it's quite an interesting way to look at your feed universe.

Well, here's a snap shot of the installed gadgets on one of my machines.

I've got a great team, and it currently looks like this
Yesterday the newest member of the team started - Shane Morris - who has come on board as our User Experience Evangelist (UxE) and he is based in Melbourne. For the last 5 years Shane has been a freelance interaction designer, and prior to that Regional General Manager and Principal Consultant for The Hiser Group, a usability/user interface design consultancy. He brings a wealth of experience to the team.
But that's not all.I've got two more new roles open
I am looking to have both roles sitting in Sydney, but for a truly wonderful candidate, I'm flexible.

I've been keeping my eyes open for WPF based applications
I spotted this one a few weeks ago. it's called PostIt Board and it rocks!
Put in a flickr tag and it will pull down images with that tag.
Can you guess the tags on this board? (I used 3 different ones)

We were talking at lunch about the top sites, by traffic in Australia.
IMHO there really isn't a good place to get this information
There is a list by Alexa and these are the top 50
Some of these sites aren't surprising, some I have never heard of before.
I could go to Hitwise but they charge for their information.
Where can I find the definitive list of top sites?
