Former Macromedia VP patents most RIAs

Just found out that Neil Balthaser has apparently patented Rich Internet Applications. I don't see how the patent supports Neil's reported claim in the above article: “The broader claim is one that basically says that if you got a rich Internet application, it is covered by this patent.”

The patent appears to be specifically about the sort of service that provides. In other words, a web-based application for building web applications. So fortunately, not all Rich Internet Applications, because not all web applications are created via other web applications/tools like Balthaser's so-called Pro:Fx.

Oh yes, and Neil Balthaser used to work for Macromedia as a "VP of Flash Strategy".
