Reading my RIA feeds has gotten almost depressing this summer. I don’t know if it’s the summer lack of news or if people are discovering the various rich internet application technologies for the first time and not trying to understand what everyone brings to the table. Stuff like this just makes me shake my head and pray we get an influx of unbiased understanding in the RIA world.
It’s actually been a really good summer from an RIA standpoint. Silverlight is close to release, our on AIR Bus Tour has been a huge success and 360|Flex sounds like it was an excellent conference. But despite all that it just seems like the conversation has gotten less interesting. We’re arguing about time-based animation over frame-based animation. That stuff is lame. We should be talking about RIAs are important and trying to get more people to understand the value.
Maybe I just need to get out and go backpacking
