Happy Birthday Flash!

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Flash - in my mind the most adaptable, innovative web design program there is. Bearing in mind we only celebrated the 15th anniversary of Tim Berners Lee's 'www' a few days ago, it makes you realise just how far we have come so quickly!

When you look at what flash can do at the moment, from simple animation to complex rich internet applications, I for one can't wait to see what happens over the next 10 years!

How time flies! Now laugh, if you will, at the dated nature of my next bit of input...
In 1970 I was allowed, at Galashields College of Technology as it was then called, to work on the design of the Commonwealth tartan for the '72 games, on a computer created to run the loom, which would weave it.It took me three days to put in a small yellow line pixel by pixel (it's still there by the way if you get a kilt for the wedding in the Commonwealth tartan!)and two whole rooms of tapey type machinery whirred into action every time I pressed the 'do this' button, like something out of the old Bond films. For me at that time, I was just lost in admiration for the person who had been able to design and make that work. Thirty years later, on holday in Madeira, I met him!!! Wow! A clockmaker by training! I feel the same now about Flash, but sadly it will take me more than the INSET day I had on it, to be able to evaluate and use its exciting stuff, to any great effect, though I can make a smiley face with winking eyes!
