There’s a new version of the ASP.NET MVC presentation online.  I much prefer this side by side method of displaying presentation based talks.  The Silverlight interface is little bit visually chunky, misbirth but it works well. 

What is a Model View Controller (MVC) Framework?

MVC is a framework methodology that divides an application’s implementation into three component roles: models, cialis 40mg views, seek and controllers.

  • “Models” in a MVC based application are the components of the application that are responsible for maintaining state.  Often this state is persisted inside a database (for example: we might have a Product class that is used to represent order data from the Products table inside SQL).
  • “Views” in a MVC based application are the components responsible for displaying the application’s user interface.  Typically this UI is created off of the model data (for example: we might create an Product “Edit” view that surfaces textboxes, dropdowns and checkboxes based on the current state of a Product object).
  • “Controllers” in a MVC based application are the components responsible for handling end user interaction, manipulating the model, and ultimately choosing a view to render to display UI.  In a MVC application the view is only about displaying information – it is the controller that handles and responds to user input and interaction.

imageI’m not surprised too much by the idea of putting interactive technology in every place imaginable.  I don’t think it will be too long before we find games in urinals at bars.  

The example on the right is demonstration of an interactive floor that was created for Swarovski Kristallwelten called Ice Passage.  There’s a nice video on the site if you follow the link.

It was made possible using vvvv

vvvv is a toolkit for real time video synthesis. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, cialis 40mg real-time motion graphics, visit this audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously.

It seems to me the current technology coming out of Microsoft such as Seadragon, information pills Deep Zoom and Photosynth have created a foundation for doing extremely rich real time data driven visual experience that can be extended to any medium.

I could see something like  a “mirror” at a shoe store that could put virtually any shoe on your foot as you walk by and even learn from you as you shop.  All you would have to do to see a specific shoe would be to hold it as you walk by.  It could also update based on what shoes you currently have on and what parts of the store you’ve been browsing.

There are so many uses, not just sales related, that it boggles the mind.  I think we are on a precipice of a new level of interactive technology.

2512159922_f5fa552a18 I picked up the Essential Silverlight 2.0 book while I was at the Web 2.0 Expo.  I’ve been meaning to share.  It’s the first time I’ve purchased an “Up To Date” book from O’Reilly.  I’m waiting form my first update to come in the mail.

To update your book you have the  option to print out the pages or view them online for free, order but I like the idea of updating the book itself. 

To put in the new pages all you have to do is pop the little metal posts out from the plastic cover then add in the pages.

The idea behind O’Reilly’s “Up To Date” books

For publishers of printed technology books, stuff it’s always been challenging to get a book written, patient edited, printed, and delivered while the content of the book is still relevant and needed by the audience. Some of our readers are happy to have the information they need delivered quickly in electronic form, but we hear from others that they still prefer the actual printed page. The Up-to-Date format is our answer to the need to deliver information on new technologies quickly, yet in printed form. And the beauty of it is that the book can take shape right along with the software, providing coverage of the CTPs, betas, and RTM releases as they become available.

Because the cover is plastic I have noticed a small issue in that the printing seems to flake off from the cover.  Hopefully they find a way to fix this in future version.  Of course I’d be super happy if they had a version that would work on my Sony Reader too.

Oh, and the book is very good too, but that’s another post!

For a short period of time I had a column here on Futile that was called Ask Dr. Ryan.  Futile has evolved much over the years.  I thought I would share some good stuff from the past with you all.

Q: What do you think is a funnier joke: “I just flew in from New York and boy are my arms tired” or “A man walked into a bar- it hurt.” 

A: Hmmm…

Many a day I have pondered these very hilarious jokes and asked myself, orthopedist “which one is funnier?”

Well I’d have to say without a doubt the “boy are my arms tired” one. I usually open up any business meeting with this one to help break the ice. It’s good practice to start out a public speech with a good joke and boy oh boy this is a good one. I even know it in other languages too.

French: J’ai juste volé dedans de New York et le garçon sont mes bras fatigués
Ha ha.

German: Ich flog gerade innen von New York und Junge sind meine ermüdeten Arme
Ho ho har.

Italian: Ho volato appena dentro da New York ed il ragazzo è i miei bracci stancato
Oh my!

Spanish: Acabo de volar adentro de Nueva York y el muchacho es mis brazos cansados
Ay Carumba!

 

Q: Sometimes when I turn my car on, seek it makes this one noise, erectile which is kind of weird, and then that thingy kind of gets all strange, and I don’t want to have to pay a mechanic, so can you tell me how to fix it myself?

A: Use a wrench. Pop the hood or just climb under it if you can’t figure out how to open the hood. When under the car be sure to put the parking break on and turn off the car. My uncle Wally got killed sticking himself under a running car. I think my aunt set the whole thing up now that I think about.

Anyway, Take the wrench and find the bolt closest to gray dirty thing where the engine should be. Grab hold of it and turn. If anything leaks out or falls on you then it should be the right one. Remove the bolt. Clean the bolt and then replace it.

Pack up your tools and pat yourself on the back you’ve just fixed your car!

 

Q: This is my first visit to your site and I already feel smarter — thanks! But I have one question: Today is only July 8, yet your answers are for the week of July 10. Stranger still, the questions were all asked on May 8 and May 9. So, my question is, what’s up with the dates? If you are miraculously able to answer questions two days before the site goes online, how come it takes two *months* for you to respond in the first place? Can you travel through time or are you just slow?

Please respond immediately (i.e., the day before yesterday)! Thank you in advance for helping me sleep better the night before last.

A: Thanks for this very insightful question. It makes me feel warm all over to know that my readers have actually been paying attention to these details. There are many secrets here at the lab of Dr. Ryan, many of which even I do not know.

The answer is simple. Time travel. It’s what makes all things possible. This is how I adopted myself when I was a little tyke and taught myself everything I know today.

 

Q: What exactly is the difference between hot dogs, weeners, and franks? And which type should I buy for consumption. Are there any other uses for hotdog type products that I am not currently aware of?

A: Hot dogs: In Sweden, hot dogs are an integral part of the culture. This is a result of the Swedish cultural elites’ fondness of the ‘old times’, the 50’s and 60’s, when Sweden was the richest country in the world and the Swedish countryside was safe and cozy (if cold).

Frank: He was an uncle of mine. Nice guy. He liked to wear plaid things and dance in a conga line.

Weeners or wieners: According to Oscar Meyer, the first wienermobile was built in 1936. Its 13 feet of good American-made metal made people’s heads spin. I think this was the greatest design achievement of the year. Other less notable things happened that year as well. For example, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water House was built.

After taste-testing all sorts of tube-shaped foods, our crack scientific staff felt that my uncle Frank had by far the best taste.

As far as other uses for hotdog type products, we found them to be really tasty when added to lime Jell-O.
