I’m a life-time learner. As a technical writer and technical communicator, I still consider myself a student of information design, English and other languages, and all-things-technical. And I don’t want my hunger for learning ever to end. It’s really fun!
However, from time to time, I also question the time and effort I put into learning new products and applications. I’m sure that’s an issue for you too since we all have limited time and energy for training.
I am, for example, questioning these days the value of learning Adobe Flash for the following two reasons:
1) Apple’s new iPad does not support Flash and, according to the latest news, it never will.
As far as Apple is concerned, Flash is a thing of the past.
2) Free Software Foundation (FSF) on Friday published an open letter to Google asking it to free the Web from Flash and H.264 video. If Google also follows in Apple’s footsteps and bans Flash, I’m sure that will impact the way web sites are designed and developed across the world.
For these two reasons I feel reluctant to invest more time and energy to learning Flash.
What about you? How do you feel about this latest development?
