<<Flash also allows interactivity, because just reading and
looking at a web page is BORING and it's much more entertaining to interact
with it.>>

Bill Horton once said/wrote that PowerPoint was the worst thing that could
happen to technical communications, and in many, many cases, Flash is worst
thing that could happen to Web design. It's all about content...

Ahh, but know your audience. Give the poor devils the option to turn that
flashy opening/spinning/morphing/fading logo OFF if they want. One person's
BORING website is another person's CONTENT GOLDMINE. Don't confuse the
sizzle with steak...a stitch in time...OK, enough already.

Go visit Jacob Nielsen's web site if you want hard-hitting content without
having to worry about going into a grand-mal seizure with all the FLASH...
