Best of this Week Summary 28 December - 10 January 2010

  • "An interview with Duane Nickull, Senior Technical Evangelist at Adobe Systems as he revisits the notion of 'Web 2.0', and discusses some of the new architectural and human interaction patterns that are shaping the way in which we build RIA Web applications today. He talks about some of the new Flash authoring tools for the iPhone, the Open Screen Project, as well as the impact HTML 5 will have on Flash adoption." Transcription of the interview below the interview. Summary in four words: "Don't piss off users". He also mentions the Open Screen Project: "It is an industry-wide initiative, led by Adobe with the participation of other industry leaders, to enable the delivery of rich multiscreen experiences built on a consistent runtime environment for open web browsing and standalone applications."
