Flash to the MaX

Flash MX

Macromedia’s Flash turns 6 (I mean, “MX”) today. The software won’t be available to ship for a short while but you can read all about it for the time being. Or read this story about Flash’s origins from the Lego-loving guy who started it all or this interview about where Flash is going with the guy who controls its destiny.

My source at Macromedia says “MX” doesn’t stand for anything. I think we at should help Macromedia out and come up with something for them. Any suggestions would be helpful.

[Some ideas for “MX”: “Macromedia to the eXtreme!”, “More eXtensions.”, “Mass eXodus.”, “Moniker eXpendable.”]
