LowFat - zoomable UI

Bruce Horn just pointed me at LowFat, which is pretty similar to (but more demo-able than) Jef Raskin's zoomable UI demo. I think I could really get used to a window manager that works like this. But sadly, right now most people only add this as an extension to their file managers.

Should be easy to simulate a the file is the window approach for a zoomable UI like this, with thumbnails saved into closed files, and lazy loading of the actual file and application as soon as you zoom in enough, shouldn't it?

Ever tried out Lila.io (www.beta.lila.io), which is a pretty awsome ZUI based Rich Media blogging system,supporting high resolution images. In some ways a crossover between prezi.com and deep zoom.
