In this interview I talk with Rick Barraza from Cynergy Systems. Rick works a lot with new interfaces. In this video he discusses one of the coolest interfaces I have ever seen.
Additionally he led the presentation team that won the PhizzPop design challenge! They presented ‘Ben’, a series of connected cross-platform applications that leveraged the power of Silverlight, Live Services, and VOIP. At one point, the team called Barack Obama from a Silverlight Facebook application using VOIP technology. Congratulations!

*You be asking what SXSW stands for? It stands for South by Southwest, a great music festival. Wait a second I know what you’re thinking, what is Microsoft doing there? Microsoft Silverlight was a major sponsor for SXSW Interactive which is celebrates the best minds and the brightest personalities of emerging technology. While I was there I had my camera along with me and decided to talk with some folks!
