Nope, that’s not a typo. If you haven’t heard the buzz about Flash On Tap yet, here’s the deal.
And did I mention beer is included? Oh, and most meals are covered too (mmm… Smokey’s Longhorn BBQ, anyone?!).
Flash on Tap is also less expensive than other conferences — and if you buy your ticket before Monday, Sep 8 you can take advantage of early bird pricing. (They also offer flexible ala-carte pricing, which isn’t so common with conferences these days…) So get on over there now and reserve your space!

p.s. I’m heartbroken that I’m missing this conference… my good friends up in Boston have been scheming for over a year now putting this together, and I was so excited to watch it come to fruition.

Adobe announced yesterday that NFL has chosen Flash as their platform of choice to broadcast Sunday Night games. Dubbed Sunday Night Football Extra, they’ve developed a “rich, interactive environment that will include interactive extras such as alternative camera angles, picture-in-picture technology, in-game highlights, live statistics, and interactivity.” And, unlike the Olympics, will feature audio commentary, and even interaction with the announcers via a “live blog”. (Not sure if they mean live chat, here… which would be more compelling.)
