We first looked at the Silverlight when it was going by it’s codename, WPF/E. Mike Wood and Aaron spent 2 weeks in Redmond evaluating the authoring tools. We walked away generally confused about the immediate opportunities and disappointed that it did not include more of the capabilities of WPF.
Given our current expertise in Flash, I’m still don’t think the platform is a great fit for our current work. However, this and other news coming out of the launch makes me much more interesting to see where it goes next.

It's been thirteen years since we started Odopod.
We've always wanted one thing: to do the best work of our lives. Along the way, we have been joined by an eclectic and exceptionally talented bunch of people who wanted the same thing. Together, we've built a company we love.
Two years ago, Odopod was acquired by Nurun.
The acquisition was a validation of everything we had built. It was also a catalyst for some big changes we wanted to make. We began to tackle bigger, thornier problems and to work all over the world. With Nurun, we've had a series of huge wins and have been producing our best work yet.
That's why we recently decided to retire the Odopod brand, formally adopt Nurun as our name, and take the reins of Nurun's US operations.
We're all still here—same team with the same appetite for great work, only now with different e-mail addresses and more frequent flyer miles. And we're growing, so send your talented friends our way.
Keep an eye out for new work from Nurun. It will be our best yet.
