Malign Neglect

Yesterday I attended my first advanced Flash class with Geoff Kaman and started thinking about variables and properties again. After opening a few old projects and getting over that Flowers for Algernon lost memory feeling, I felt ready for sixteen weeks of ActionScript 2.0. Kaman also explained how he had worked on the Pulitzer-Prize winning Altered Oceans series for the Los Angeles Times to design dynamic content for the newspaper. Sadly, many of the links are now apparently broken, and they are hawking the work as a traditional DVD to be passively viewed. It may indicate how, yet again, the Los Angeles Times is reacting against the practices of digital audiences rather than adapting to changing times.
