Admittedly, this particular item has received a good deal of coverage in the blogosphere already. For those of you who haven’t checked it out yet, and those of you (like me) who always miss stuff the first time around…

Blaise Agüera y Arcas once upon a time (2005, to be exact) was a speaker during an RLG annual meeting, and he created quite a stir back then with a demo of his software SeaDragon. In the meantime, his company was bought out by Microsoft. Here’s a truly astonishing demo of what his code now does in combination with another piece of software created in collaboration with U of Washington under the moniker Photosynth. I won’t even attempt to describe what it does – suffice it to say it involves lashing together a heterogenous bunch of flickr images into cohesive and immersive whole. Highly recommended viewing!
