In detail: why we opted for HTML over flashSDk Updates
Wed 17 Nov, 2010.
For some time we've been pondering on whether to explain in some detail why we chose to produce SomethingDark – the magazine as well as the website – as an HTML-based entity. We touched on the subject in our "more What is SDk?" document, which we made available after SDk01 was launched, but the itch to go the whole hog persisted.
Well, we've just scratched that itch, and the result is a much more detailed explanation of why we bucked the trend of doing an online magazine in flash, and why we think we're on a winner with HTML. We do go into the technology a bit, so those into the tech aspect will be like pigs in mud, but it does also make for interesting and straightforward reading for anyone wanting a glimpse of what we researched and considered before proceeding with SDk's development.
So, please help yourself to our HTML vs. flash page. And, perhaps, do a little pondering yourself.
