In my inbox sits an email entitled "Why are AS3/Flex developers so difficult to locate? Is it too much to ask for those skills combined?" I followed the link to the forum which then talked about Flex, actionscript and mxml. What I want to know is, where are all the *swf* developers? I'm talking about the devs who can develop in flash as well as flex. I've been working with both apps for some time and it's amazingly useful to understand the pros and cons of each. In fact, let's push this thought a step further. Where are all the hardcore interactive developers!? Under your belt should be a nice array of front end languages. Learn Flash, Flex, Javascript, Silverlight and even the HTML 5 canvas (up and coming). Knowing the power of all high-end interactive software will never hurt you! I'm making it a personal goal to raise the bar for interactive developers. After all, knowledge is power.

It's always good to update your site. This seems like a great rule of thumb of which I'm not so great at following. In efforts to keep my information up to date, I decided to make some informative updates earlier this week. Of course irony struck as I'm pulling up my site and I see the php equivalent of "you're site isn't working because it doesn't feel like it's getting enough love." At this point I'm in shambles because I just sent my resume to a new client. What to do, what to do. Well with a little php, one host support ticket and a nap (while I waited for support to email me back) I'm up and running again. Thanks "Nat M" from mediatemple!

I recently finished a project for Lexus which allows the name-brand to show off the luxurious c10 in english as well as in spanish! I landed this gig through one of my favorite agencies whom I worked with during a two week time-window (start to finish). If you want to find out more about this project, check it out in the portfolio section.

Making my site "IE friendly" has reminded me how much I dislike IE. I was tempted to block IE6 users and just give them a pretty little message which asks them to switch to firefox, but I haven't forgotten those helpless corporate computer networks! While IT sits back and surfs in style, the rest of the office is dealing with broken divs and old flash players. So, for the 1 and 1/2 office persons that stumble onto my site thanks to a google search, you're welcome. I reserve my right to believe that one day IE6 will be banished to the curb.. on trash day.

The scene: I'm standing with a friend at the 42nd street subway platform waiting for the 2/3. My buddy asks me if I know anything about GA. We're not talking about Georgia here kids, we're talking Genetic Algorithms. Shortly after that, he's got my head spinning with ideas of travel and how to find the shortest journey involving x amount of cities. Two weeks later, I've taken the weekend to comprehend fitness functions, mutation and natural selection. The evidence can be seen here.
