Flurry of Experimental Flash
Wow! We did it! We posted experimental Flash projects (with source files) every 30 minutes for 24 hours. It wouldn't have been possible without my amazing team. Edwin, Mike, Paul, and Stacey, and special guest Keith Peters, posted fantastic and diverse experimental flash projects (including source files). The experience made us all wish we had more time to experiment. Everyone went above and beyond what was asked of them, and in my eyes they truly sparkled.
In addition to the coders, we had an invaluable team member who may be unfamiliar to the Flash blog audience: Phyllis Pugh. Phyllis is a neuroscientist.She is also on the board of directors and is the science advisor to GalaxyGoo. If you ask me, we've just discovered a hidden talent of hers: blogger extraordinaire. Her introductions were great! She stepped up during the blogathon, even with an unexpected and personal loss.
Why'd we do this? There were two main goals: 1) inspire our fellow flash developers to do more experimentation and 2) raise money for the educational programs at Galaxygoo.
It's not too late to make a pledge of support for GalaxyGoo at blogathon.org. To every donor who pledges $40 or more, we'll be sending a cool thank you gift: a Glow-in-the-dark Astro-Logix construction toy (64 pieces).
