Not Betting on Flash

SoCal CTO

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 boy - May 6th 2010

Chaganomics

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.

One of the reasons is because of its ease of use more developers are relying on JS for animation instead of Flash. allensblog. Thoughts from a startup sherpa.

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. Most of my developer friends reject Flash as “ an animation system, with a crappy scripting language “ They were probably right 3-4 years ago, but not any more.
