I promise, I’ll have some new CIO announcements posted later today. In the meantime, I’d like to direct your attention to a screencast I created with the help of CIO‘s multi-talented Technology Editor Chris Lindquist. The screencast shows how three leading-edge companies are using Flash, Ajax and video on their web sites to make them more dynamic and easier to use. It accompanies a story I wrote for the March 1, 2006 issue of CIO titled Flash In the Online Plan. The screencast is a new medium for CIO. I think they’re a great way to tell stories, to communicate and to educate due to the powerful way screencasts combine audio and video. I’d like to do more screencasts, but the only way I’ll be able to do so is if they drive a lot of traffic on CIO.com, so please check it out, and tell me what you think! Thanks!
