Geeks With Blogs
Denny Boynton I think, therefore I have a headache!

I took some vacation during the month of July and decided I was going to do two things:

  1. Start a blog about my love of drums and all things percussive.
  2. Learn more about Microsoft's Deep Zoom and Silverlight technology.

The outcome of item number one is my new web site, This is a site by a drummer for other drummers.

As to item number two, it's a sad characteristic of my profession that I rarely get to "go deep" on any technology, but I saw this as an opportunity to get a personal project started and learn some cool new technology for my day job.

The result is my first Silverlight Deep Zoom project, a mosaic of my favorite drummers. I put this up on, last month and today wrote up a detailed post on the tools and process I followed to make this little work of art.

You can read the whole story at:

Also, in the next fews days, I'll be writing up a post on my experience producing, deploying and hosting streaming video using Expression Media Encoder and the Silverlight Streaming service on Windows Live.
