flex talk

Sitting in Andrew Shorten's talk on Adobe's flex. You can write an application using flex that runs inside a flash player, or on the desktop using air. Will have a Linux air player later this year. buzzword uses flash as a word processor. picnik does picture editing. sliderocket does presentations (not yet public).

The command-line compiler is free, bit the IDE is proprietary. Flex can cache the flex class library inside the player. Can use rtmp to push data to the app. air has a SQLite library built in. Cute stuff.
