Edge Hi, I'm Julie Campagna. I manage the EDGE newsletter. Today we're in San Francisco, attending the FITC festival, where developers, designers, digital artists from all over the world converge to discuss all things Flash. So we're going to catch up with some of the attendees and find out what's happening in the world of Flash. Let's go. [♫ techno music ♫] And so you've been at the conference for a couple days now. Have you seen anything really that's been innovative or that's really rocked your world? Bruno Fonzi, Powerflasher>> The impressive new thing is seeing devices-- having Flash working on devices. Martin Libich, Powerflasher>> Well, I think in the Flash world in general what we're seeing, and this is crucial for what we do, is the possibility of taking Flash out of the browser, using the flexibility of Flash to do what has been done on the Web anyone where you want--in the storefront, at the counter, when you're ordering your latte. Dominic Berry, Continental Airlines>> Mobile. I think, just like everybody else, the idea of Android getting bigger and having more stuff available for Flash developers is really exciting. Richard Galvan, Adobe Systems>> From my perspective, one of the most exciting things is this buzz and this development going on for mobile, especially on Android, and to actually see the community react and actually take that and actually do stuff with it is really exciting. Kevin Suttle>> I actually went to Colin Moocks' session today about the Union platform, which is multi-user development through a phone API. So, being able to create something mobile that is inherently social and taking that and using Flash to kind of leverage that and make a really unique experience in a public--you know--mass medium kind of way is--ah--is great. Langston Richardson, Logitech>> I'm really excited about how Flash is going from just a desktop era to everywhere. You're going to find it on mobile devices. You're going to find it on the digital living room. You're going to find it everywhere. So I'm really excited about that, and for me, as a creative person, it's really a bigger canvas to really connect to, and I'm really, really excited about it. Colin Moock, USER1 Subsystems>> You can just get your ideas out so quickly in Flash, you know? And it's accessible to so many different kinds of people, so it brings a whole bunch of different kinds of thinkers together. I talked to Seb Delisle for a little bit about his presentation. He did some crazy fun stuff with cameras, and that's really playful. I like that. Andre Michelle is doing this crazy audio effects production experiments, where he is just generating audio based on--kind of--visuals that you can manipulate. Branden Hall, Automata Studios>> I've never seen another community like this. We're constantly pushing each other to do new things, to create new things, and even more so, to teach each other, for learning new technologies and just also pushing the platform. Brendan Dawes, magneticNorth>> What I love about it is it's new every single day. So when you fire up Flash, it's a blank canvas for you to make stuff, so the more we can have Flash on other platforms or-- and the more it becomes ubiquitous, then the better I think it is for everyone. Well, we're wrapping up at FITC. Obviously there is lots of great things happening in the Flash community from multiplayer games to Flash in the living room to Android devices--there's lots going on. There's also just a lot of fun stuff going on. So if you want to learn more about the Flash platform, visit the Adobe Developer Connection. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this edition of the Edge.
