This is absolutely amazing stuff. My big question: when will all of this beaufiul social and media integration just be a part of Windows on the desktop?
Tim also produces music and visual art under the moniker Systim, and often shows at his studio / gallery in downtown Seattle.

Yes. Incarnate references your avatars on Facebook, YouTube, etc ... so if they change it should change the avatar you used when you leave your comment.
Hope you like Incarnate and use it. Be sure to let us know at @mixonline if you implement it!
As for samples of work I've done that speak well specifically to the developer/designer workflow, let me point you to a couple samples:
Oomph: A Microformats Toolkit
SongSmith Application (not website or marketing)
So, hope this is helpful. Robert and I stay in good contact, so keep an eye out for more interviews with the two of us.
I totally welcome your feedback, and think your idea of recording some videos of how I actually design these applications is a great one. Thanks for getting in touch.
As to the comments regarding this looking like a Surface application, since it's all written in WPF, it would be "very easy" to port to Surface.
And by very easy I mean I actually have no idea how to do it, but I'm told that it's possible.
Does anyone think it would be worth exploring? What about being able to "grab" a panel, resize it, and automatically have more content appear in the panel as it gets bigger? That's an idea I have for the next generation of this, but I thought I'd gauge interest in this functionality.
Any other suggestions? Karsten and I were thinking about opening this up for a "remix contest". What'cha think?
It was a fun interview, and I was glad to be able to show off the app and talk about it a bit. Thanks to Charles and the team.
Karsten was awesome to work with and I'm hoping to work on more projects like this ...
I love my job
I wish I had hung around for the shenanagins, or however you spell it. I really had to bolt after that HR meeting and ensure that my carreer goals were in-check and in-line.
