    Flash: Glitz Bad... Improved Communications Good!

    Hi All,

    Looks like there are some folks here who create Flash animations.

    I think Flash is great when it's harnessed to help teach, make an illustration
    clearer, etc. But I find it annoying when it's designed just to look cool.
    Don't slow me down with that cr*p please--your web site couldn't possibly
    interest me enough that I'll wait around for a slow loading Flash intro, just
    to find out what, if anything, of substance your web site offers.

    Here's an example that I consider good use of Flash: IKEA's How to Build BILLY
    Bookshelves. To see it, reassemble the long url onto one line:

    http://www.ikea.com/content/main.asp...furniture/spot
    light/furniture_spotlight_billy_assemble.asp

    Does anyone else have good examples to share? Or, for that matter, especially
    bad ones?

    For a really bad example, check out www.bridgedale.com. It's slow, hard to
    read, and there is no html alternate version.

    Good example of "Glitz Bad". What a shame. :-(
