Hiya Dave, good to see your still lurking?

Thank you for those contacts. Even though they are familiar to me, I am sure
others on the list would love to give feedback.

I hope my comments were not taken as an insult, but instead as an
indication. Generic ergonomics and basic design principals are nothing new
to aspiring interactive media designers educating themselves. IMHO, these
basic principals are extinct on MM's shockwave.com site. It's not "bad"
flash, just amateur and on a professional level, uneffective. Again, MM's
decisions effect all of those that spend hundreds, even thousands of hours,
devoting time out of their lives promoting your technology.

>Anyway, I am sure you meant no offense,


>but I think it is generally not considered great netiquette to criticize a
fellow list members' work without a site >critique request from that

Again, no criticizim intended. I try to stay away from critiquing other
people's work and, yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But the use of
the medium here, I believe, should to professionally "sell" the product and
not some "Rembrant" piece of Flash work to "WOW" its visitors. From my
educational experience, the flash at issue does not achieve this.

Again, IMHO.
