    I don't think anything has ever come close to Flash since its demise. It's great that we have so many open-source technologies now, but we're barely catching up now with stuff like Canvas and OpenGL, but usually involving a lot more complexity…

    That graph really says it all. Staggering how you can go from $3,600,000/year track to $120,000 track in a few years, simply because the technology (which you had zero control over) died.

    I wonder how did you do with Adobe's request to change the name?

      Hey Ethan! It was super stressful at the time and felt like the end of the world. Oddly enough though we got a traffic bump that month from the press stories about it. Our SEO survived the rebrand and I think if the fundamentals of Flash hadn't been experiencing a down trend it probably would have been all OK really!

      Scary legal letter to receive though :-) especially for newbie entrepreneurs!!

    Honestly, I think Flash lasted so long because of places like FlashDen

    Personally, this was a happy fall for me. Glad to see more stable standards winning.
