Flex & Volkswagen

The impressive new Volkswagen site is reported as being promoted with some pride by Volkswagen. You can see the ad here where it announces that ‘http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/, built the same way as we build our cars’.

There have been some negative comments regarding the performance from some people, but who buys a car from a website on impulse? It works well for me but I do agree that Flex may not be the best idea for a website, a rich internet application yes but a complete website?

My first useful blog?

This is my second attempt at a blog. My first blog was a result of being encouraged to start one shortly after joining Adobe Consulting. In my first and only post I made rash statements about my blogging intentions. Today that single entry blog is still there for all to see. I like to think that it was my Scottish self-consciousness that stopped me from adding to it rather than a lack of (worthwhile) things to say. You might disagree but this time I think I do have something to say on Flex, AIR, Java & other stuff. Having been helped by countless other blogs I thought I would offer my experiences of building RIAs in the hope that it will add something to someone’s understanding somewhere out there.
