The Actionscript Conference – My topic : Flash and Socialnetworking

The Actionscript Conference is coming soon. It will be held this week starting at Friday 17th till Sunday 19th which is main day of conference. As I’ve already mentioned, in its first issue, speaker list is great, Lee Brimelow, Peter Elst, Marco Casario, Stefan Wessels, Michael Plank, Prayank Swaroop and latest Grant Staker, and me.

I will be speaking on a topic that is very interesting Flash and Socialnetworking. Socialnetworking is at it’s peak now, or peak is yet to come but SNS (Social Networking Services) are in rise. In fact whole web is moving toward socially organised internet users and information exchanged between them. That should lead us (slowly for now) towards semantic web.
So how does Flash (Flash / Flex / AIR / Flash Lite) plays in this game. Is it enough to be widget, media and gaming platform in a world to come. We all know the strong sides of Flash, but does flash goes well with SEO and semantic web? what it needs to do to stand up to the role we all actionscripters and rich internet experience lovers would like?

Please post your oppinion on anything you have in mind for this topic, it will be valuable addition and will surely make a better content for the speech.

Thanks in advance!

Lee Brimelow Interview with Justin Everett-Church, Senior Product Manager for Flash Player

Very nice interview by Lee Brimelow with Justin Everett-Church, who is the Senior Product Manager for Flash Player, about some of the most frequently asked questions regarding Flash Player 10 and our new search technology.
I somehow missed this one, and I am very happy to watched it now. I like the non-hype realistic talk Justin presented.

Watch the interview at TheFlashBlog by Lee Brimelow

One note more is that Lee Brimelow will be presenting at The Actionscript Conference in Singapore… Great news.
