Wow. We were really blown away by the response to the DRK ad spoof contest. The creativity of some of the entries was simply amazing. So much so, that we decided to pick three winners instead of one.

And the winners are (in no particular order):

Each winner will receive a copy of the DevNet Resource Kit Volume 3 (chocked full of component and sample app goodness).

Thanks for all of the great entries. We will probably being doing some similar contests in the future.

Flash Based Google Search App

Josh Dura and and I have been playing around with the Google Web Service API. We have put together a simple Flash based application that allows you to search google. It is not 100% complete, but we though we would post it to let people check out (and hopefully give us some ideas for features).

The application uses the GoogleService ActionScript Library, components from DRK 3, and Flash Remoting.

Update [May, 5 2003] : A new version of the application was uploaded. You can see a list of changes here.

Spoof me and win a DRK contest

OK. As many of you have noticed, some of our DRK marketing materials use some pictures of me. You can see some examples on the macromedia home page (you may have to reload it a couple of time) as well as here, here and here.
