Via Virtual Earth

Via Virtual Earth is a help site for MSN Virtual Earth’s API.

The site also has a blog, of course. Interestingly, according to this post, there was no API for Virtual Earth as late as May this year. Writes Dr. Neil Roodyn, the author of the site:

My first question to the (Virtual Earth) team was “What are you doing for developers?”

They said “Nothing”

“Nothing? What no API? No support for developers?”

“No, nothing.”

“Um… interesting” My brain started racing. If they don’t want to provide support for developers, then someone else should!

Roodyn concludes, with no hint as to whether his tongue is in his cheek, “I love Microsoft, they create such great opportunities for all of us!”
