Using notes in AGExplorer: Video

Bern from the ArcGIS Explorer team is at it again, this time showing off the notes functionality in a video on the ArcGIS Explorer Blog.

I am also a little excited about seeing the demos at the ESRI UC in August since I missed the demos given in DC and Palm Springs earlier in the year.

I definitely recommend that you head over and take a look at the article to see if it resonates with you as it did with me. Ten Commandments of Egoless Programming
