Posted Jan 17 2009 2:10am
We watched the Olympics in Silverlight and now the inauguration of the President. Would be nice to have EHRS in a nice dynamic format too, related reading talks about how this can be done with open source free software from Microsoft.
Make sure you have the Silverlight browser add on installed to view. This last year with events, videos, etc. has really changed the the way and how much time we spend interacting online. BD
