Lots of interesting stuff here. I came across this site long back, very little changed. Some of his stuff, I think it was a small game, was put on google too.
Click on an equation and click on the screen. The ball eases to the clicked area according to the equation. Nice effects.
“They’re using XML to parameterize how a SWF looks and acts, also xml is used while exchanging XML-formatted data with the server” via JD. They have some neat demos on their site. You write your app in XML (Laszlo app language LZX), and the server does the flash for you. More info here.
Macromedia is also releasing “flash for programmers”. Write XML and out put flash. It is nice to see flash components, (for UI designers), getting integrated with “XML + flash”, (for programmers). Laazlo lacks in this aspect and they are trying to design all the UI components. Does macromedia have anything that makes the work of system architects easier? May be an interface which helps using design patterns might come up at a later stage. Sun is also trying to support scripting languages in Java. Robert comments on what he thinks royale is. It would be nice if Royale and Laszlo setup some standards for their XML scripting or use existing scripting languages.
James Rowley created an interesting interface for a content management system with flash. I don’t like the flash interface for published text, but the editing interface is a nice prototype.
An on-line journal on “Software for the next generation of the Internet”.
Flash forward has a voting for the best flash swf in apps, cartoon, and lots of other things. You can spend hours here.
Guess who got the cash, the costume and special effects teams. Reeves made a good deal, 15 per cent profit-share of matrix sequels. Thats the way I like my matrix tix money being spent.
