Microsoft hosted a networking event at the Drake Hotel in Toronto. The main goal of the event was to demonstrate new technologies from Live Labs.
The two technologies featured are:
Pivot (presented by Jeff Weir): A digital asset management system for large sets of stuff. getpivot.com
Seadragon (presented by Beatriz Díaz): zoom in on any image of any size. seadragon.com
Seadragon was used for the opening shots. Both apps actually run faster than what's shown. My computer just slowed down when recording the screen.
They also gave away an XBOX and 2 Zunes. None of which I won :(
