Big Zoomy ThingI mentioned this a little in passing at the beginning of the Big Weekend stuff, but it definitely bears repeating. Radio 1 have created this amazing online patchwork quilt of photos from the Big Weekend, and you kind of zoom in and out of it with ease, and discover things, and really focus in on other things, and generally play hide-and-seek with photos. Some of the pictures are amazing, including shots of all the performers, shots of the Radio 1 presenters, shots of the stages, shots of the site, shots of the people who went, shots BY the people who went, and if you look very closely, in exactly the right place, a shot of yours truly blogging on the floor next to someone else's used beer can. You can even see what badges I have on my bag.

Yes, it's THAT good!

They're calling their technological breakthrough The Big Zoomy Photo Thing, because that's exactly what it is, and I do recommend you check it out. And if you were there and you have photos you'd like to submit, that's the place to do it.

Dull Note: There's a Microsoft Silverlight plug-in that you may need to install in order to run The Big Zoomy Photo Thing. But it's entirely worth it, you can lose entire days in there, I'm telling you!
