Flash is officially dead . For all its service to the internet and popular culture, it was very much a product of the 1990s and early 2000s. We now have web technologies that are faster, safer and more accessible. When Adobe announced the end of Flash, I recalled fond memories of my early journey into entrepreneurship. Surfing the first wave of Flash, I learned foundational lessons about doing business in emerging technologies that have served me for two decades. When I first discovered Flash, I was 11 years old. I was in middle school and already mesmerized by new media and the internet. It was love at first sight. This new software enabled me to create interactive web experiences with all the bells and whistles imaginable, and I knew this was exactly what I wanted to do.

EXCLUSIVE: Acclaimed director Roger Spottiswoode is set to premiere his latest film, “a love poem to New York,” at a time when some have questioned the city’s post-pandemic future. Either Side of Midnight , which debuts Saturday at the Cinejoy virtual film festival, is “a lyrical celebration of the intoxicating diversity of New York, told through four stories which collide over the course of one Friday night in Manhattan.” The Canadian-born Spottiswoode has lived in Ottawa, Los Angeles, and the U.K. at various times in his life, but is now based in New York. Either Side of Midnight pays tribute to his adopted home. “It’s one of those films that has four or five main characters that are sort of woven together,” Spottiswoode tells Deadline. “It doesn’t say it [explicitly], but it is a film about how multicultural the city is…It’s also a kind of love story to New York.” Related Story SXSW Film Festival: 'The Fallout' And Docu 'Lily Topples The World' … [Read more...] about Veteran Director Roger Spottiswoode Unveils New York-Themed ‘Either Side Of Midnight’ At Cinejoy Film Festival
