MIX10 Notes

I’ve been watching some of the live video feed from Microsoft’s MIX10 presentations. I found these interesting:

The Open Data specification looks promising. Netflix open data catalog was used for demonstration. I wish Netflix provided a way to query popularity rank by zipcode for a particular title. This would make it easy to make a map showing where a title is popular.

Microsoft’s Dallas Project seems similar to WeoGeo. I saw no mention of when Azure will support spatial types.

Silverlight continues to improve, but I saw no mention of support for DirectX. IE9 will leverage DirectX – why can’t Silverlight? If you need a highly dynamic map you might be better off with javascript.
