Happy Anniversary Flash!

Flash is now 10 years old!! I came in contact with Flash roughly 7 years ago. We used to work on Flash 3 that time. Time, people and the world has evolved and so has Flash. We now work on Flash 8 (already one year old) with features we would have never imagined.

It all started with as SmartSketch, an illustration program for the stylus-driven Tablet PC. It was created by John Gay and Robert Tatsumi of Future Wave Software. The next version of the product renamed FutureSplash Animator came in 1996. Macromedia purchased Future Wave in December 1996 and renamed the product Flash. The rest, as they say is history.

Adobe is celebrating this event in a big way. Also, there are interview by Mike Downey, Flash Product Manager on cnet news and wired news.
