Why isn't seadragon directing to ZOOM.IT

I think there is no need for seadragon.com as a site, it should redirect to seadragon.it

We do plan on retiring the service from Seadragon.com altogether, but we haven't had time to properly consider the implications of that and make sure we do it properly. Since there's no rush to do this, we chose to leave it up for now.

Note also btw that Seadragon.com currently does have a good chunk more than just the service. We have a developer section full of good info and a showcase of apps that use Deep Zoom technology.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi Aseem. I hope SeaDragon.com just redirects to the new site in the future. When do you tink this would happen?

I, for one, find the developer section to be of use. There are several places around the web where I have pointed people to the resources found there and they are all places on the web where I have no means to edit my prior post with an updated URL, if the entire Seadragon.com site should be taken down.

Is it naive of me to think that since all the current 'Seadragon.com' embedded viewers point to files on the Seadragon.com domain, you need to retain the domain, simply for those embeds to continue working, even if you update the Javascript files to point to the zoom.it viewer(s)?

It's still possible to keep it working, but it should be redirecting from SeaDragon to Zoomit. All the resources could be moved too.
