    They are complete idiots,if they want HTML5 to spread they need to make a deal with porn companies. I really don't understand why people think protesting like this is good instead of making deals. What good does being anonymous really do if your in business.

    That's a fair point. I'm just glad flash is on it's way out that's all.
    I never liked it - partly because I can't watch it on my iPhone, partly cos it's crap for SEO...

    I agree though, HTML5 needs a lot more promotion!

    Could do. Still don't like flash though. I think it optimises the typical client that wants the flashy site with lights and action and moving stuff and doesn't care whatsoever about functionality, usability, SEO and so on:)

    I'll only join Occupy Flash if it is like all the other Occupy movements... 90% of the folks have no idea why they are there.

    Is there a survey or something on the OF crew out yet?

    Any articles in the WSJ or the Times?

    Assorted blogs from clueless people?

    Pics of guys and gals that have not had a shower for weeks?

    Pics of silly looking guys with hand made signs (I saw one in NYC that said, "This is my second sign, my other one was outsourced").

    If there is none of that I am not going to join.

    Ha ha. Think I'm one of those people. I only looked this up on BBC news app for iPhone cos I was getting frustrated that none of my threads were getting answered.

    This was like an A B test for serious question vs random thread to see which would get more responses :)

    In that case I retract my post just to screw with your stats.
