The rise and fall of Adobe Flash

quote [ Around the same time, Jackson had been struggling to convince retailers to stock SmartSketch. Then he noticed that CompUSA had kiosks and shelves of products in prime positioning with the phrase 'made for the Web' stamped on them. So, he told Gay they needed to do something for the Web. ]

SmartSketch, huh? Insightful accounts in this one. Actually a great story about prosumer software and random creative input.

I made a few cartoons in Flash. It was fun. I'm glad it's dead, though. It was a big security problem and it made web sites slower.

I'll miss it. There's a lot of culture that's going to be lost.
