360 degree views of Stonehenge. Absolutely stunning.
There's wonderful writing in the blogosphere if you have the pointers to find it. Caterina:
It seems to me that the shadow cast by one's mind, that is, the sphere of knowlege that one's brain may encompass, is finite, has a certain limit, and stays within that limit; that one thing remembered causes another thing to be forgotten; that one carries one's own personal circumference of attention, and that, try as one might, try as I might, that is, I cannot cram more understanding, more thinking, or more knowing into this pre-ordained or self-limited Knowosphere. That someone else knows something and I don't doesn't cause me to relax into the noosphere, though there are certain things I am happy not to know, i.e. I haven't the faintest idea what football team is likeliest to triumph this year, and am satisfied that certain problems, (an understanding of cube roots, fathoming Kant) fall outside the realm of my concern.
I can relate. I've given up on football, cube rootes, and Kant, too.
Today I participated in a demo of Breeze Live, Macromedia's new synchronous technology. Wow. Macromedia was having internal server problems, so Peter Ryce plugged his modem into a phone line and still managed to give a snappy performance.
Peter showed us a Breeze presentation (that is, PowerPoint ocnverted to Flash), video that had been converted into Flash (supposedly a push-button operation), hi-res jpg photos, and other content from a library. He flipped into app sharing -- and recorded that vignette for immediate playback. He called up some "Flash Paper," Macromedia's Flashy Acrobat-like tool (except lightweight).
Tom King clicked open a webcam, quite clear but the size of a large postage stamp. I clicked a link and my webcam shot appeared right next to Tom's. Given that Breeze Live comes with voice over IP, this could be a nifty coaching environment.
Tom and Peter use the metaphor of a conference room to describe the Breeze Live environment. Unlike conferencing solutions that are over and done with when everyone exits, a Breeze Live Conference Room is persistent. I can go back where we were this afternoon and find the same set-up, the same presentations, the same content library, etc.
I'll report back after I've tried Breeze Live. After all, this was just the demo. (Scroll to last item of the link.)
