It’s been FOREVER since I did some simple multimedia development. With the wide acceptance of blogging and my recent WordPress obsession (recent as in the last 4 years) I seem to have forgotten my roots in the multimedia world.
Does anyone remember Flash? I know we still see it all over the web and there’s all these crazy Flash applications and 3D immersive environments, but sometimes I long for the old days. You know, before Flash become a programming environment and us scripters didn’t have to know object oriented-programing to make a simple interaction.
Don’t get me wrong I love the advancements that have been made in the multimedia world. I think there a lot of high end development options that just didn’t exist back when Authorware and Director were the big boys. But here’s the deal… I have no interest in becoming a full blown programmer.
There, I said it.
It’s true. I just like to make things. Fun little things that may not be efficient or scalable or reusable. They just exist in my little world and that’s ok.
If anyone is interested I can write a little tutorial on how I made my little slide show up there. I built it as a prototype for a simple site at work and it’s super inefficient, un-scalable and fun. :)
Note: All the pictures were taken from my twitpic account. Hmmm this get’s me thinking… wonder if I can automate it to pull the latest pics from the feed. Doh! There I go again.. thinking like a programmer.
