WynApse Mining the Web for Silverlight so YOU don't have to
Ed Silverton with 3D Flickr Photo, A gaggle of Silverlight Developers blogging about RC0, and Bill Reiss with a fix for RC0 not working.

Unless you've been sleeping behind the door, or you're not overly interested in chasing the technology, you already know that last night Scott Guthrie announced Silverlight 2 Release Candidate Now Available. For both of you that have just awakened and are reading this, let me be the first to announce it... for everyone else, I've tried to cull the more informative of the links from the very large assortment of bloggers talking about it already this morning:

In no particular order, except the first batch have quite a bit of information... Mike Snow: Silverlight Version 2 RC0 Released!!, Pete Brown: Silverlight 2 RC0 – Developer-Only RTW Prep Release, Tim Heuer: Silverlight 2 RC0 Released for Developers, Michael Sync: Download - Silverlight 2 RC (Release Candidate) Released, and Andy Beaulieu: Silverlight 2 Release Candidate 0 Released.

Other Bloggers talking about it are: Dan Wahlin, Laurent Bugnion, and Mike Ormond.

Silverlight 3D Flickr Photo Explorer
Ed Silverton sent me this application yesterday, and when I tried it, it didn't work.... after an email exchange, I tried it again last night, and the problem was of the PBKAC variety (Problem Between Keyboard And Chair) ... when the app runs, it prints in very large letters "TYPE HERE" ... wipe across that and replace it with what you want to search Flickr for... like dogs, for instance. Flickr doesn't return much if you make it search for something like "TYPEdogs HERE"... Ed has taken another shot at protecting his code from idiots also :)... and what he's done here is SERIOUSLY cool!
Updated to Silverlight RC0 and now it's broke?
Bill Reiss has a quick fix for if you decide to take the RC0 update and you're not feeling the love from Silverlight.

Stay in the 'Light!
