Scoble treats us to some of his enthusiasm about Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope.
You drag around the sky. Thereâ€™s Mars. Thereâ€™s the big dipper. Thereâ€™s Betelguese.But it has one difference between any telescope youâ€™ve ever looked at.
You can zoom. Zoom. Zoom. Zoom.
We picked a point of light inside the big dipper. Zoom. Zoom. Zoom. Zoom. Holy shit, itâ€™s two galaxies colliding. It looked like a star. Zoom. Zoom. Zoom. letâ€™s switch to a different telescope and see what these two galaxies colliding are spitting out.â€
He clicked a button and we saw a completely different view of the same colliding galaxies. This time we werenâ€™t looking at visible light, but at something else.
It runs only on Windows. Itâ€™s coded in C#/.NET
Ah, same old shit.
It would be nice if Scoble gave them some hell about only releasing this stuff for Windows. He’s so into his conversations but what…non-Windows people are not classy enough. I thought this was on the fricken web?
And it’s not at all me too, me too. When will Microsoft learn?
