WorldWide Telescope Announced

Microsoft gave a demonstration today of its forthcoming WorldWide Telescope application, the site for which is now online, but we still don’t have very much hard information about it. A lot of reactions. Robert Scoble, who when he saw a demo of the software said it reduced him to tears, actually offers some information on what it does and why people might be reacting the way they do. Coming in the spring, and Windows-only due to its codebase.
