A Win for EveryoneFrom Mike Mell, firstname.lastname@example.org:
Today I'm a Frontier webmaster. Got a major job for a major corporation to do their website (and the workflow process) in Frontier. Thank you Dave and UserLand.
Tonight I went to the Macromedia event in San Francisco. They demoed Flash3 to lots of SF web types. They announced that Macromedia will make the Flash file format public domain. The Flash file format will be to vector and animation on the web what GIF is to bitmap, if they have their way.
I read, courtesy of you, that Netscape, Adobe and IBM announced PGML on this very day. A bit of well-timed upstaging? hmmmm...
I trust Macromedia to get the vector format right (since they've already got the file format) more than a loose group of bureaucracies promising something down the road.
Thanks for your work. You help us all.
