Web 2.0 A quick round up of various web-related news items. First up, a new open source product entitled the "Highgate media suite" will bring OGG video decoding to Silverlight. Microsoft have just joined the SVG working group (arguably 10 years late, but it's better than nothing). Adobe promise significant improvements in Flash 10.1, including Core Animation rendering on OS X and lowered CPU usage. Finally, CoperLicht--a WebGL JavaScript 3D engine (Quake in JS will be here one day)

People complain about flash like they complained about java applet of the old days.
And people have been praying HTML5, video tag and WebGL as the internet savior.
Point is that as we let designer go crazy on the design and put everything they want in a website and making up some crazy requirement for the website we won't get out of this crazy cycle.
Of course web application are marvelous, and Flash being strong on IE on Windows platform, has been a big problem for alternative platform.
But hey going monolithic is apparently the way of the future, no middle ground, tighter control. Apparently even the advanced users seems to head that way.
