Microsoft’s MIX ’08 conference this year had a cool event called the Showoff. It was basically an opportunity for developers to, well, showoff some of their cool work from the past year that featured Microsoft tools. We didn’t have anything in particular to show, so allstars Lincoln and Peter decided to whip one together.
They created the Mix Cloud. Built using Expression Blend and Visual Studio, it’s a site where people at the event can post shout-outs and other messages. As new messages are submitted, older messages move back until they form a dynamic, user-generated background.
Check it out at http://mixcloud.352media.com. While Lincoln and Peter made the application, I put together this academy-award-caliber video. Enjoy.
