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.

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.

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.

Are You Ready for the Post-Flash World?

Altgate

Flash for mobile is dead. Can Flash for desktops be far behind? For years, Flash has enjoyed a monopoly that is comparable to Microsoft in the past and Google now. If anything, HTML5 adoption will likely accelerate, ironically because of Adobe’s abandoning Flash for mobiles.

In parallel it has denigrated Adobe’s Flash (albeit with some justice) as being insufficient for purpose while establishing a pro-HTML5 position as the ‘best’ way to move forwards. I guess we should thank Apple for forcing the Flash vs. HTML5 issue and then imposing a punitive licensing scheme on their app store… both of which have conspired to catapult HTML5 into the foreground for developments of applications which have web and mobile experiences.
