Animation

My first love is probably animation. As a child I'd watch hours and hours of cartoon on TV. Everyday after school on the UHF channels and every Saturday morning. I studied animation during college and became a master of Flash. It was great, but it was killed off by the internet it was created for. The first nail in the coffin was Google's search engine. If flash was used for any web page linking Google couldn't follow it. Then when the Iphone came out Apple said it wouldn't allow for any flash animation. Rumor has it that it was because Apple had a falling out with the software developer Macromedia. Facebook also put the block on flash. Since then Flash was bought by Adobe and they've developed a new software package called Animate.
