    Remember FI saying adios to Flash? Not so fast...

    If you guys remember this thread... well, it seems like Fantasy Interactive have not abandoned Flash altogether at all.

    Enter Kontain. Once the beta goes out, word is that it's totally built in Flash. Hmmm.

    Hello. Absolutely not. In-fact, we would appreciate as much support as possible from the FK community and others alike for Kontain. We really cherish feedback from piers and fellow industry folks. I do encourage you to sign-up for the beta as we have a limited number of spots available.

    Dude, awesome.

    No lie, just the other day I was talking to a friend about how all Flickr, YouTube, MySpace, Shelfari etc. is broken because it's all broken up by media type, and that Joe Six Pack can't/wont'/shouldn't have to get into mashing them all together, that someone needs to bring it all together in an easy clean format, not like MS Live.

    I see I've been beaten to the punch.

    Did you encounter any hurdles during development that made you second guess choosing flash or did it all just fall into place?

    I recently convinced a client to go with a flash tool over ajax and I'm so glad I did. I'm doing things with it I don't even want to imagine how'd I'd have done otherwise.

    Yes, about a million of them. There will be 2 technology versions of Kontain. A 100% flash version and a XHTML/Ajax version. Beta will launch with the flash version first and the html will follow. A mobile version is currently in development.

    Great minds think alike. Hire me, I need to get out of e-Learning before I go insane.

    exactly. such an easy transition instead of going to twitter and complaining about our copier, i can goto kontain and post about how i hate my copier, and then post a video of me planting explosives, and then a picture of the pieces left behind.

    Now that is bold source code. A single flash embed and tracking scripts. Either you have js running or you don't see a thing. Guess they don't care about page rank atm. Looks like they're using woopra in addition to google analytics. I might have to check them out.

    It's going to be a wonderful site to point to when arguing the use of flash, deeplinking etc.

    Woopra is pretty nice but it takes forever to get a site approved. My first 3 sites took about 2 months each to get approved. I have one that I submitted 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting for approval on it.

    I'm not that hard to imitate. Just make some random negative claim at Apple or anything else for that matter and then have nothing to back it up.

    on the 250mb upload limit it says there is a time limit, does that mean that after that amount of time what i uploaded goes away? or i can only upload that much over a 30 day period and it resets?
