    Flash video player is an excellent choice for where we are, technologically.

    There’s a “Download Video” link as well, so iPhone and iPad users (and anyone else whose device doesn’t support Flash) can view the video file directly.

    The “download video” link is also useful for those who wish to save the video file.

    Great show Z, looking forward to more goodness. Web Fonts are now, and this podcast makes it a fact.

    Best to you and Dan in the future.

    The IE Team announced their contribution to the WOFF format on their blog on Apr 23. Let’s hope it makes it into IE 9 preview builds soon, and that the proposal gets through the W3C quickly.

    What A Great Big Show! In my current state it took 3 days for me to make it to the very end, but it was well worth the many pauses. Thanks to all the class for not only hosting and sharing, but leading.
