To flash depends on your target audience, and your level of expertise incorporating it into your site. And what exactly is the purpose of the Internet? Is it the sharing of information? How do you touch someone on the other side of the world or across town? You appeal to their senses - touch, sight, smell, taste, hearing - or the perception of those.
Well put. I started out using flash quite a bit, now I rarely use it. Though there are a few times here and there when it's use is requested and in that case it's important to know where and how it's best used. I think that happy medium is something many struggle with, including myself at times.
