Google Reader and Flash

with 7 comments

Here at Web 2.0, the guys at Google Labs just released a web based news aggregator called Google Reader. It looks pretty usable from the 30 seconds I spent with it so far. What is even better is that it will aggregate podcasts and allows you to listen to the podcast in the page using Flash!

Web 2.0 Week

with 2 comments

Well, there is a lot of buzz right now on the internet, as it is Web 2.0 week. A few of us from Macromedia will be here (it is right here in our own backyard in San Francisco), including Mike Chambers and Christian Cantrell. I am very excited about this conference, the world is really waking up to what Web 2.0 and the next generation internet really is. Mke Chambers has a very good post on this subject and how the Flash Platform fits into this.

Obviously there will a lot of announcements from different companies. Rumor has it that Yahoo! is introducing a new search product, and 37Signals already announced and released there new Writeboard application. I can’t wait to hear what else is coming, this conference is definitely well represented by all the big players who are participating in defining what the web will be in the near future.

If you are here and see me, feel free to come up and introduce yourself.
