I've been looking into a bicycle. Especially now I have to walk 9 blocks to work. Not sure I'll be able to get one any time soon due to space limitation in my studio. Velorbis seems to be the bike I would buy. It's beautifully designed and well made. You must check out their collection.

Nice Explaination of AMF ( Action Message Format )

Lee Brimelow at The FlashBlog has a nice explanation of AMF. This is great for those that are wanting to get started on AMF. Personally, I love it. It helps pack binary data and sends it to my server-side with minimal overhead. Think of having the availability to send an array to the server as an array, or a string as string. Great stuff, check out the article and go install amfphp to test.

Introducing: Sweeties & Gangsters - Portfolio by Anthony Cintron

Finally! Sweeties & Gangsters is now live. I originally came up with this concept last year while I was visiting San Francisco. After a year, I'm happy to release the first iteration of my digital playground. It has been over 4 years since my last personal site. The second phase will include an open source section. For now, take a look at my micro-site and let me know what you think of it.

Finally, without further to do - I present to you All content modules were done using Flex 3.0. Used Cairngorm as the architectural framework, Papervision 3.0 for the module flips, and Degrafa for all ui elements. For the "Like it. Take it", we created an entirely seperate video player optimized in pure AS3. I would like to give Jonathan Stasiak a big shout out for helping me out on this enormous project. It took 2 weeks for component and module development, as well as the overall framework. It then took another 2 weeks to add enhancements, fix bugs and do lots of testing. It was interesting to see how two Flex developers could get this type of project done within a 4 week constraint.

General Deep Linking Strategies

We should expect more deep-linking strategies for Flash/Flex content. Adobe recommends these basic principles.

Adobe is teaming up with Google and Yahoo to improve flash search results. They are going to deliver an optimized flash player for the search engine's spider. I look forward to this.
