Know your carbon offset?

As mentioned in my last post, in addition to the website redesign and replatform to MOSS, I also oversaw a project that involved taking one of the customer's primary "eye candy" applications, an HTML/JavaScript-based carbon calculator, and ported it to Microsoft Silverlight v1.1 Alpha.  We solicited the services of a couple of talented developers, Pete Brown and Steve Suing, both of Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Applied Information Sciences to construct a compelling user experience geared as showcasing how you can leverage Silverlight to build Rich Internet Applications (RIAs).  And what more compelling a business scenario than to build a solution geared at drawing attention to our carbon consumption with hopes at making us all take a more proactive stance and preserving the earth's natural heritage by conserving on our energy consumption!

Below are some screenshots of the application, that you can access here, and while you're there, make a contribution to a worthy cause!  Pete also has written a blog post that breaks down how the application was built.  Head on over to his blog and check out the post.
