I blew a good half an hour yesterday utterly fascinated by this:
It's "just" a 360-degree picture, something that's been around on a lot of news sites since the early days of iPix and Quicktime VR.
But it's huge.
And I tell you what, on a 20-inch Apple Cinema monitor, you feel like you're going to get dunked. The detail is just dazzling. Click and spin and look around.
It makes me painfully aware of how badly most news sites treat photography: Little tiny thumbnail images that (if we're lucky) click through to semi-tiny versions.
It's as if we're still catering to the 14.4kbps dialup crowd.
In a broadband, high-definition world, we should be giving images their due.
