My name is Stephen Schieberl. I am a Creative Technology Lead at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, Oregon. I build everything from large format installations to experimental interactive art to database-driven web sites and more.
Ahead of writing an article for this blog about best practices in AS3, I did a little Flash experiment as an example. This SWF takes a word, looks it up against delicious.com 's API, returns related tags, and uses them to generate some interesting imagery. If you have a multi-touch-enabled device and Flash Player 10.1 or better, try using the pinch gesture to zoom in and out. Click here to view the SWF in action.
