SVG - 'DieFlashDie'

Gordon is a Flash interpreter written in JavaScript that renders to SVG. Very cool. Some confusion in the crowd as to whether this is a crawling horror or very cool. It’s very cool, of course. It’s your migration path-cum-compatibility layer for browsers that don’t get SVG.

Embedd iframe in SVG gives the ability to do horribly complex/flashy web pages portlet-style.

Inkscape’s ability to ooze out SVG will make it easier for designers to go from mockups to functional web pages if you only care about SVG-supporting browsers. Depending on your point of view this could be wonderful or horrific.

Unfortunately the talk was long on rhetoric, but short on what we can actually do now - tools to animate, let alone convert or develop Flash-style apps are non-existant.
