How To Make A Flash Website | How To Create A Flash Website With CS5

Fri, 09/30/2011 - 14:53 — julie

Flash websites can be an attractive way to captivate your viewers’ attention and make their user experience on your site a little more interactive. Flash websites are different than a normal, text coded website that was developed with HTML, PHP, ASP or another language. You start with a raster stage where you can place objects based on X and Y coordinates and then dictate on what you want the objects to do, or how you want the user to navigate through the Flash site based on a timeline.

Blast from the Past:FlashDen Through the Years

Thu, 09/15/2011 - 12:30 — julie

I think it’s fantastic that our marketplaces hit a million members this week. That’s progress! It took over four years to accumulate our first half million members, and less than a year to double it. Incredible!

But Envato’s marketplaces had much smaller beginnings. It all started with one fledgling site with much fewer members: FlashDen (now ActiveDen).

The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine is an amazing resource. It basically allows you to travel back in time and see your favorite websites the way they were back in the good old days. This afternoon I spent some time there exploring FlashDen.

Google+ vs. Facebook: Comparative Review

Wed, 09/14/2011 - 08:06 — julie

Even as adoption of Google Plus by new users seems to be slowing down a bit less than three months after its launch in June 2011, the experts are yet undecided as to who will win the battle for number one place in the social networking arena, Google Plus or Facebook.

The bitter lessons that the Internet giant learned in the social media space with Google Buzz and Google Wave may stand it in good stead, but in the modern open source age, lessons are really out there for all to learn. Facebook’s privacy controls debacle has not resulted in a significant drop in active users, following a concerted campaign to educate them about existing and new features.
