Finally I finished the Flex RIA site redesign, actually I should say “re-theme”. Take a look and tell me how do you like it! Wish my dear readers will like this new site better.

Posted by Charles | February 21, 2008 | 13 Comments

With $6.5M from Frazier Technology Ventures and Morgenthaler Ventures, blist is to make it the “easiest database” in the world, in Flash/Flex.

I think the money invested is for the believe of the next generation web, the Semantic Web (Google called Web 3.0). A Flex based RIA approach is certainly a niche enough drawing attention from VCs.
