Very funny video 🙂 (follow link to source to play the video)
OMG, I can hear the fanboys battling already. Here’s a video from last night’s CES 2008 keynote, Bill Gates’ last for the foreseeable future. And I know its scripted, edited and contrived, but I’m sold: The man is a cool geek. He’s not cool in a fonzie/Jobs kind of way in this video. But very much like how he seemed at total ease with his geekiness and place in the universe at Mossberg and Swisher’s All Things D conference the guy just looks happy here. (Especially while playing goofy and modest butt of the joke with this short’s star studded cast.) He seems nothing like the anti-antitrust mogul with a killer instinct and “bad taste” we learned to hate in Pirates of Silicon Valley. Fanboys, get to your comment battle stations. Just leave me out of it — I only wrote the headline.

Through Scoble I came across a very cool game (in progress) for the Tablet PC called Crayon Physics. Very cool and level 3 of the prototype game already was too much in my quick test … Can’t wait for the real game to become available …
Crayon Physics Deluxe is a sequel to the popular freeware game Crayon Physics. Or you can think of it as the game I would have created if I would have had more than 7 days to do it. Way more than 7 days. More like 7 months or 17 months.
Anyway Crayon Physics Deluxe is a 2D physics puzzle game, in which you get to experience what it would be like if your drawings would be magically transformed into real physical objects. Solve puzzles with your artistic vision and creative use of physics.
The game features:
- Greatly improved physics (you can draw what ever you want)
- Huge number of new levels
- Easy to use level editor
You can read more about the game from my blog. Also you can test the original prototype which is freely available. But please understand that the prototype isn’t a demo version of this game and doesn’t reflect the quality of Crayon Physics Deluxe.
Be sure to check out the video on the website. Don’t you have a tabletPC ? Too bad, but you can always enjoy the video 😉 …

The Silverlight-powered Halo 3 Online Manual went live on http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/halo3.aspx. Also a series of new Silverlight-enabled video promotions will be available on http://halo3.msn.com/videos.aspx.
Microsoft Silverlight is more and more used in all sort of solutions such as Microsoft Tafiti; it’s a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next-generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.
The Silverlight-based Halo 3 video trailers also leverage Microsoft® Silverlight™ Streaming by Windows Live,™ a companion service for Silverlight that provides free hosting and streaming (on-demand progressive streaming) for Silverlight applications.
Jeugdsentiment … gisteren naar het concert van ‘The Police’ geweest met 2 vrienden (ook oudere jongeren 🙂 ).
Toen het nog licht was heb ik even een foto gemaakt vanuit de “bar” :
Nog even een impressie die ik op YouTube vond vanochtend (het geluid ter plaatse was iets beter 🙂
Het concert was in 1 woord super ! Alle hits kwamen langs , maar elk met mooie improvisaties … Ik had dit niet willen missen …
