Twitter plus Flash as a simple CMS


Patrick, one of the awesome flashers here at Panorama3000, has coded this neat flash website for an actor friend of his. Usually I’m not a huge fan of flash sites for all the well-known issues around flash (no direct links, lousy accessibility etc). What I like about this one, though, is its smart implementation of Twitter*: The actor can post news updates directly through Twitter and thus doesn’t have to learn anything about handling a Content Managing System. Twitter’s RSS feed is sucked straight into the flash site. Neat, eh?

  • Today may be a bad time to use this example since Twitter has been down most of the day. It’s a great example though, so please check back later in case it’s not working right now.

Disclosure: I’m sharing office space with Panorama3000.

New HQ at Panorama3000 / Berlin


Panorama3000 I’ve moved my office to a new place. From now on, the great folks over at Panorama3000 are giving me shelter in the form of our neat sublet office space. Sharing our little coworking-like arrangement is freelance illustrator Matthias Pflügner, and the occasional guest freelancer or PhD candidate.

I’m excited to be here – the atmosphere is great, as is the espresso. This should be fun.

Thanks to P3000 for welcoming us so warmly to their home!
