YACO: Jeremy Allaire

Yes, it's time for YACO (yet another Central overview)! It's Jeremy Allaire's turn in his latest Logged In article, Macromedia Central and the Next-Generation Internet. It's a good “big picture” overview of how Central embraces these 10 trends of the next-generation Internet:

  1. Broadband
  2. Wireless
  3. Devices
  4. Rich Clients
  5. Web Services
  6. Real-Time Communications
  7. Hosted Applications
  8. Big Data
  9. Paid Content
  10. The Software Manufacturing Economy

Central is introduced as a desktop environment — an interesting turn of phrase. With enough useful applications, and on small devices (especially those without well-loved legacy desktop environments) I guess you could live “full-time” in Central.
