First up, eagle eyed Scott has just caught a job vacancy on Monster for a “Senior Product Manager, Flex Mobile Development at Adobe”. Well there’s been some suspicion regarding this matter since Flash Lite 1.1 came out, I asked Mike Chambers this when he came over for the 8-Ball London MMUG special in Sep with a very understandable no comment, but now it looks like the final piece of the puzzle is fitting into place.
I spoke with Alex Bradley at Spark in Amsterdam last October about this matter, and how he might convert the excellent Kinetic Fusion into a Flash Lite content generation and distribution platform that runs on any Java enabled server, something similar to Flash Cast but without being completely closed to everyone but mobile operators. People that might be interested in using it include large TV channels, papers/magazines, educational facilities and any other entities that have a large amount of managed textual and multimedia content that they’d like to distribute to a wide user base through the web and mobile.
I can see a lot of room for such products in the near future, now I need to have someone give us the capital, and let’s get coding!
