Video Demo: Control a papervision3D sphere with a litl remote
After doing our first 2 live video workshops recently, some folks were asking about PaperVision3D and general 3D performance on litl. We grabbed a simple sphere rolling demo and wrapped it in a litl channel. The result is a simple, but insanely fun example of controlling a 3D object in Flash within a litl channel….

It’s Sunday morning, January 3, and I’m on a natural sugar high after drinking a cup of Cran-Peach juice from Massachusetts-based Ocean Spray. I wanted to be in the most positive frame of mind (not easy when my Celtics lose 3 in-a-row to end the year / but easier when you wake up to relaxing…

Presenting to a packed house at FOTB
I’ve heard rumors that over a hundred were turned away from my session today at FOTB. I’m happy to say that my debut presentation at Flash on the Beach was super fun and very successful. The stereo microphone demonstrations were flawless. All in all, the questions and audience participation were the best I’ve ever experienced….
Fixing Snake Eyes
After sitting in a box for 5 years (that’s 5 years too long), I finally unpacked my G.I. Joe collection to display all 75+ of them in my custom-built glass cabinet. Upon opening the box and sorting them out, I discovered about 12 of them were broken. Having a fixed bunch of them before, I…
Adobe MAX 2008 Announcement
Like so many of last year’s non-Adobe-employed speakers, I was not invited to speak at MAX this year. Thankfully, I was able to lobby Ribbit to obtain a significant presence at this year’s show (more details to come). I really enjoyed my first speaking experience at MAX last year and I am excited to be…
Universal Mind blogging loud and clear
Recently I blogged about Esria’s efforts to engage the community by aiming the talents of Josh Tynjala towards open source components and tools. I am becoming very impressed with the way Universal Mind has mobilized its talented (and very well-known) force to promote the company’s efforts and projects through the individual blogging of the entire…

There’s a very good showing of web 2.0 companies like: Ning, Google, Facebook, SalesForce.com and Plaxo. Other prominent companies at the…
