Not Betting on Flash


On my eLearning blog, I recently predicted the Beginning of Long Slow Death of Flash. The conversation around Flash is an important one for startups and CTOs. Someone said: "I am not sure I am ready to bet on the long slow death of Flash just yet." What does it mean to "place bets" on death of Flash? Do we include Flex or Flash as a delivery technology? I'm not betting that Flash is dead in five years. I'm hedging by NOT betting on Flash.

Book: Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt

Feld Thoughts

Flash Boys was a good capstone to the last week of wallowing in the global financial crisis of 2008, which I began by watching the movie The Big Short. But, once again, after reading Flash Boys, the cliche “Wall Street Always Wins” rings true in my brain. The post Book: Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt appeared first on Feld Thoughts. A cliche I’ve heard many times is “Wall Street Always Wins.”

Flash, HTML5, and Mobile Apps

A VC : Venture Capital and Technology

About a year ago, I wrote a post about Apple's "blind spot" for Flash. It opened my eyes to the fact that Flash vs HTML5 is one of the most politically heated topics in the tech business. The first is that HTML5 vs Flash is not a winner take all battle (at least for many years). But for video, gaming, and other "immersive" applications, we'll see developers sticking with Flash for a long time.

Flash boy - May 6th 2010


Market watchdogs would not have expected the source of the "flash crash", as it came to be known, to be a lone trader based in a nondescript semi-detached house in Hounslow, an unfashionable suburb nestled between central London and Heathrow airport. THAT America’s stockmarkets dropped by 10% in a few minutes on May 6th 2010 was worrying enough, even if they did bounce back quickly. Worse still was the realisation that nobody understood why or how it had happened.

Apple vs. Adobe Flash

High Contrast

VentureBeat published an analysis I did of Steve Jobs’s Thoughts on Flash. Since I used to work at Macromedia, the creator of Flash, now part of Adobe , I wanted to share my broader perspective and biases in this matter: I am a proponent of Web architectures and open standards. Eight years ago I was involved with Flash. I use both Flash/Flex and HTML/CSS/AJAX. Tags: Adobe Apple Flash Steve Jobs VentureBeat

Flash is the New Client-Side Java

Andrew Payne

Instead, the original vision has quietly been realized by Adobe Flash. Site operators (notably, Youtube in 2005) discovered Flash was the best way to get in-browser video. The growth of Internet video cemented Flash’s position as a ubiquitous browser-plug in.
