In an unlikely twitter exchange this weekend, hollywood starlet Alyssa Milano raised some hackles in the developer community by tweeting this link-baiting article on ArsTechnica. The article claimed that Adobe was bowing to Apple by planning HLS streaming support in an upcoming version of Flash Media Server, as I noted in a previous post.
When she received more than a few comments about the slant of the article she linked to, she handled it with diplomacy by linking to Robert Reinhardt’s in-depth analysis of the new technology and what it means for developers and content producers.
Kudos to Alyssa for listening and for using her “influence” for presenting both sides. Oh, and hopefully she’ll be sending @flashfreaker a couple of bucks to cover his hosting this month.
