Peter Elst posted something interesting - a counter-arguement to an article published in the "Inside Digital Media" magazine...
I haven't got a copy of the article, but Peter's post is interesting. I think it sets the tone with this quote;
“Facebook, MySpace, Google and eBay are not made in Flash, that is undoubtedly due to the fact that at that time they were not able to agree on licensing terms with MacroMedia”
Pop over there and have a read - see what you think.
