The Science Elf explores the rise of and fall of Flash, a technology that enabled rich interactivity on the internet since the late 90s.

It became ubiquitous on the web and met its doom at the hands of the Steve Jobs, no really.

I do take issue with the statement in the video that Flash was a “flash in the pan” technology. It was prevalent for the better part of dozen years. Flash had staying power and it was only the pull of the iPhone that killed it.
