Quietly Scheming Creates

Display Shelf

Monday the most impressive implementation of my Fliptych I've seen since CoverFlow flew into my feeds. Ely Greenfield, a developer at Macromedia/Adobe (creator of the Flex-Ajax Bridge), has built a fliptych interface that runs in any Flash-enabled browser, able to represent visually any dataset available on the web. His open source Flex component has already been used to navigate Flickr pools and YouTube content. That's in just the first two weeks since the source was made available--imagine any web-app developer--now they're able to incorporate the fliptych browsing metaphor into sites personal-to-corporate, with relative ease, for free. This is huge.

And just as before, this developer has paid proper attention to aesthetics and feel--this work honors mine, and again I'm humbled. My feelings here go beyond appreciation and respect. This idea didn't just find it's way into an app, maybe the app--it's now a tool, freely in the hands of creators. I can't say thanks enough for carrying this for me.
