We were really excited to find something that captures our own design thinking so perfectly. From starting with user needs, designing for accessibility, and insisting on evidence-based design decisions; these guys have structured these ideas really well.
1 Start with needs*
2 Do less
3 Design with data
4 Do the hard work to make it simple
5 Iterate. Then iterate again.
6 Build for inclusion
7 Understand context
8 Build digital services, not websites
9 Be consistent, not uniform
10 Make things open: it makes things better

Adobe has announced their intention to donate its Flex SDK, for building web applications, to the FOSS community. While the Open Spoon Foundation has been working on an open source fork of Flex, it is our suspicion that Adobe will donate the SDK to the more mature and capable Apache Software Foundation. Causing a furor among Flex developers, Adobe has announced that they believe HTML5 is a better technology for moving forward than the Flex platform. This of course has raised concerns that the Flex platform will recede into the classification of abandonware, as Adobe has a tendency to abrubtly terminate support for technologies that it deems a failure. So where is this going exactly? Is this a generous donation to the FOSS community? Or is it just Adobe dumping their abandonware? Hopefully the answer may be found largely in the former, as opposed to the latter.
