Three in one

Cool use of Flash, wicked music and an interesting photo-collage of tired mornings is the CBC RADIO 3 : Snooze button feature in short. Dean Baldwin has wired his digital camera to his alarm clock and recorded his early-morning-face for the rest of us to enjoy. The project was 3 years in the making.

ActionScript reference library – The community doing Macromedia’s job

ActionScript.com launched their ActionScript Reference library this week. Complete with user contributed notes.

Flash mini-blog reader from Michael Gunn

Its nice to see how the community keeps building on each-other. This time its Michael Gunn (Hollowcube.com) that has released a very nice, clean and fast mini-blog reader. Yes, that is right. I have finally created my own RSS blog reader! And it’s pretty darn cool if I may say so myself. It will eventually be part of the hollowcube.com blog interface, so it’s in ‘Beta’ at this moment.
