Lecturing at Boston University today, on Flash

I graduated Boston University’s College of Communications in 1999 with a B.S. degree in Film and Television. Per the invitation of the college’s alumni association, I will be lecturing 30-50 students, Monday, April 9, 2007 on my success with Flash. The title of my lecture/presentation will be called “Flash, the Ultimate Communications Tool”. 

In the 20 slide presentation, I will lead a journey through my personal exploration of Flash. Starting with my purchase of an educational version of Flash 2 in 1998, all the way to my working on development of Yahoo! Maps, I will cover the way each new version of Flash played into my growth as a developer. 

The real fun part of the lecture, for me, will be to showcase Flash in various key communications uses. Including YouTube > Video, Jumpcut > Video Editing, MSNBC > Journalism and Yahoo! Maps > Essential User Apps, I will detail some of the more prominent and diverse samples of Flash content and applications. 

More fun will ensue after the presentation, when I am able to catch up with some of my friends and colleagues in the Boston area. I hope to do this again throughout the year as various conferences and other speaking opportunities in Boston emerge for me. 

I’m hoping to provide the video of the lecture online at some point, so stay tuned. And if you are a BU COM student planning to attend, I look forward to seeing you there!
