Last week or so, I stumbled on to the site for the Visual Studio 2008 Demo Challenge. The gist of the contest is to make a video explaining why VS 2008 is great, and then win stuff. Your video is played backed in a Silverlight app that your host at silverlight.live.com.
So I make a video, and I think it's pretty funny. I setup an app with Expression Encoder, and I'm feeling great. I go to submit the video on the contest site and ... nothing. The site seems broken, which would explain the lack of videos in the gallery. (I had a bad feeling about the absence of competition.)
I just don't have good luck with Microsoft contests. :-(
Click here to watch the video. You'll need Silverlight 1.0 to view it.
Update: I just heard that the contest died. Would someone still like to give me an Xbox for kicks? :-)
