A couple of weeks ago I had a look at a "module" for EPiServer CMS 5. It's going to be a part of our new package called Create+, and is called InteractiveScene. It basically gives the editor the ability to add and configure Flash-based content using EPiServer.
So, how does this end up being an entry on my blog? Well, it got me thinking. But first off I have is to say that I'm not here to replace InteractiveScene in any way. Neither am I here to tell you to do it. My concept builds on top of InteractiveScene, using it, not replacing it. It would of course be possible to use my thoughts to use this outside of EPiServer, in which case you would have to build the parts that I use from InteractiveScene manually.
So, back to the question, why am I blogging about a third party application for EPiServer? And why the @#!*% am I blogging about something that is using Flash? Everybody knows what I think about Flash... I love it, but don't know how to use it. The whole idea about how to use Flash is built around people who have minds that don't work in the same way as mine. So...thats actually the answer to the question. The "education" I got in "IS" was mostly based around the editors interface. All the cool development is actually made in Flash and just configured through EPiServer and thats no good for me. So I do of course have to find a way to tweak the system to use Silverlight instead of Flash.
