Flash Heroes Pt1

Continuing the theme that I started a couple of weeks back by reviewing Continuity I thought you might be interested to see what I just stumbled across: http://lab.andre-michelle.com/tonematrix.

Obviously this is a pretty simple experiment but again it really sums up what I love about Flash: its ability to provide a platform for creativity in all forms. True there are more sophisticated, faster and, as Mr Jobs points out in his recent and beautifully penned bit of spin (which I shall respond to separately), more stable and battery-kind platforms out there, but none that are as approachable to the novice/amateur/hobbyists/academics who are the lifeblood of the flash scene and are responsible for creating some of the most beautiful and creative work on the web. True flash has limitations and flaws but, as I've said before, adversity breeds creativity, so... long live adversity... viva la flash... and lets all pray that Adobe don't manage to kill it off as they currently seem to be doing their best to do.
