[Nettime-bold] Re: <nettime> more flash digest [mcelroy x2, klima x2, fahey]


Maybe you can get Vince McMahon!

Seriously, I think that working with a text editor and a C compiler is 
probably a lot more straightforward than needing to have "strategies for 
migration or emulation" or not knowing whether "All this might change." 
Otherwise, I am happy that you are enjoying "programming," or "feasting," 
or whatever anyone else wants to call it, in Flash or ActionScript. You 
gotta do whatevah works for you.

Again, if this is all you people got out of my post, then I must have 
failed terribly in communicating my arguments with Lev Manovich.
