Podcast #4: Requiem For A (Flash) DreamFriday, October 12th, 2012
In it we spend nearly thirty minutes beating up Flash for its lunch money, officially stating what everyone knew years ago: Flash is dead.
So I guess we were beating up a corpse. Or maybe a zombie. The former would make us deranged, the latter would make us heroes. So I’ll go with the latter. We’re god-damned heroes. We deserve medals. And like Chewbacca, we’ll go overlooked. It’s a cruel world.
Specifically we start by discussing the decisions involving IE10 not including Flash, then begrudgingly including it but white-listing Flash sites. Somewhere along the way we start making fun of most of the Southern Hemisphere. Because let’s be honest, your toilets flush backwards. Which is a sin against all mankind.
I think this ties in beautifully to our last episode, wherein we discussed tool obsession. Flash is a tool, and that tool’s days are drawing to an end. The sooner people jump ship to newer tools, the better off they’ll be. And hey, Adobe is there to help you. They already know Flash is dead and are building all sorts of crazy new tools to replace it.
