I sort of relate to flash or not to flash to the old arguments I used to hear from hard liners who didn't want to upgrade from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95. The pace of the Internet is increasing in speed and broadband capacity. If your audience is largely dial-up, then by all means minimize flash. 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.

I'm a fan of flash, in small doses and I rarely have used it in anything. Oh and flash intros on websites...hate them.

IMO flash should be used only for banners and very rarely to add some functionality. Whatever takes you to corporate technology isn't good, in the long runs, for the community.

My apologies - I'm not understanding what you're saying here.
