Magazine interface > http://www.zkimmer.com/Statement/2007/August-September/index.html. Interesting, but I am not completely sold.

Telling stories using a Google map like interface > http://wetellstories.co.uk/stories/week1/. Now, this can actually work. It seems like a very fun interactive way to read stories, on a digital medium. You only have bits of text to digest at each place. Let’s see where this goes. First impression, these guys have me.

Microsoft SeaDragon seems totally cool. Looks like this is something similar, only to organize large sets of data.

SeaDragon Demo at TED talks. The first part of the talk contains this cool demo of SeaDragon @ http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/129

SeaDragon official site @ http://labs.live.com/Seadragon.aspx.

Looks like Microsoft is really onto something here, but let’s wait and watch.

Cheers,
Laks
