Moving the V in MVC closer to the user

I’ve been preaching that this is what the future will look like for years, ever since the first time I saw a simple Flash app that dynamically included server data. I’ve always meant to learn Flash, but it’s been so “movie” oriented that I never could get enthused. Finally, Flash gets application (I’m sorry, “Rich [Internet] [Client|Application]”) oriented.

Now, we just need to transparently bind Firefly to both SDO and DataSets, and we’ll be able to look back at those days we used quaint HTML-rendering HTTP clients for our application front ends.

I posted this in December 2003 during week 1552.
