flotzam – Twitter, flickr, facebook mashup in WPF.

    flotzam is a mashup of information from sites like twitter, facebook and you can even connect it to additional data sources.

    It’s been created using Microsoft Expression Blend and Silverlight. It comes 2 forms, an application and also a screen saver.

    It comes with a sweet UI created by the developer Tim Aidlin, the design was taken by Karsten Januszewski the developer and the data connection was made.

    There’s a video @ Channel9 with the designer and developer of flotzam, well worth a look.


    After trying this out on my laptop and work machine, I’ve noticed it is incredibly resource intensive and had my processor running around 90-95%. Also experienced random crashes – displaying “the application is not responding” error. I am running this on Vista machines. So if anyone is still running XP and would like to try this, please leave a comment about your experience.
