The Metaverse and the collective visual memory

Ctein posted about this on the Online Photographer. I must say I find these expanding conceptions of what photography is both incredibly interesting and the potential of them very exciting.

Watch and listen to Blaise Aguera y Arcason on Seadragon and Photosynth (okay - yeah, it's ultimately microsoft because bill bought it...)
Combine it with Jeff Han's multi-touch screen (are they using that on the iPhone?) and and the potential expands even more

To be precise, Microsoft aquired only part of this whole package. The other part, equally important, was developed in MS Research. Therefore I think that you are wrong being ironical in your post with this "bill bought it".
