Then the damn web came along and ruined it all: There was a web
version of Director called Shockwave, but due to the overhead of
bitmap graphics another program called Flash started to build
rapid momentum. Macromedia would acquire Flash and rumor has it
that Director is still around but the notion of getting a Lingo
gig is history. And now that it’s the year 2010 I’m seeing the
same thing slowly start to happen to Flash all over again.
