Ryan Stewart, new Adobe evangelist (sweet), is looking for sexy AJAX applications. You know, the ones that look like Flash:
So where are other sexy Ajax applications? Iâ€™m not talking about Gmail or even Google Calendar, Iâ€™m talking about applications you could mistake for Flash, the kinds of applications even *I* canâ€™t help but admire (even if they could be built faster with Flash and Flex ).
What’s the point? Ryan, we all know that beauty is on the inside. The only time Flash impresses me is when someone uses it in an invisible way. sIFR, Google Finance & dojo Storage come to mind.
If we want to point to successful AJAX applications, why exclude GMail, Google Calendar, Zimbra, and Highrise?
Confucius says – Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.
