We’ve been talking about Microsoft’s Silverlight as a new technology for creating online video.  The other side of the technology is its use as a rich, interactive medium.  One of the more intriguing applications is its use as a graphical interface for search results.

Developers have come up with some very cool ways to show how Silverlight can make search results look compelling.  This experiment is called Tafiti.

It’s not part of Microsoft Live at this point, but it could happen.

Beet.TV was up in Redmond earlier this month.  Our intrepid producer David Kavanaugh caught up with Marc Mercuri for a demonstration of Silverlight and its use in Tafiti.
