“It is really, really, really hard to build something like Gmail and Google Maps,” said David Mendels, general manager of platform products for Macromedia. “Google hired rocket scientists–they hired Adam Bosworth, who invented DHTML when he was at Microsoft. Most companies can’t go and repeat what Google has done.”
I don’t think so :)
Ajax isn’t trivial, but it isn’t rocket science. And, it is only going to get a lot easier. As we look around and see the interesting work that is being done, we are more and more impressed.
Again: We are not trying to say that there isn’t a valid place for Flash, Lazlo, etc.
