A piece in the New York Times Friday about a new show "Kappa Mikey" from The Animation Collective. What makes it interesting is that it is done in Flash.
Doing animation in Flash is nothing new nor is the idea of simplified production (as with South Park or even Clutch Cargo nearly half a century ago). Flash content doesn't take much network capacity because it is coded mostly as objects. It avoids the whole the need to compress - it is a compressed format.
