Innovation is what the industry is all about, and I am always amazed at the creative people I meet. Last November I spoke to Amazon Camp in Toronto, and after the presentation one developer stuck around for a few minutes. “I’d like to show you a site that I built”. He proceeded to show me a beta version of www.zoomii.com, which was simply amazing.
Zoomii just launched! Check it out for yourself: especially the user interface. Zoom in and out, pan around, and try clicking on the arrows in the headers of each book shelf. Chris Thiessen wrote this to resemble a physical book store, and even displays book images in a manner that shows their size in relation to the books next to them.
Thanks Chris! I’m certain that others will find your site as engaging as I do.
