A History of Flash

Michael Mace has written an insightful history of Flash, and what led to its downfall:

If you look for root causes of the Flash failure, I think they go back many years to a fundamental misreading of the mobile market, and to short-term revenue goals that were more important than long-term strategy at both Macromedia and Adobe. In other words, Flash didn’t just die. It was managed into oblivion.
