nomadtoons.mobi all mine!
As usual, I jumped the gun last year when I went all crazy over flashlite and the ability to produce animated films, sites, and UI stuff for cell phones.I figured that the world was about to go crazy. Everyone will have web sites... ON THEIR PHONES! HOLY CRAP! So far that has not been the case.
But... Last week there was a story on NPR about a bed and breakfast in North Carolina that launched a .mobi site for their business. It has been pretty successful. Something told me that it was time to jump on registering nomadtoons.mobi. For those of you unaware of what I'm talking about, .mobi is the designation address for sites that are made for phones. The layout, UI, and design will be especially for cell phones.
The good news is that I already know how to whip out cell phone sites pretty easily. So all I need to do is sit down and do it. So for anyone trying to make a quick buck by purchasing a .mobi for my site... too bad! I beat ya!
Anyhow, another good thing I noticed is that ALL of Verizons top-selling phones now have flashlite capability. My advice for anyone in my line of work is to JUMP ON IT now. I plan on making nomadtoons.mobi into a true-to-the original companion but it WILL have a number of actual flashlite generated cartoons! hooray! The one thing that really gets me going is new technology and perhaps that's what got me off my ass to actually make some new cartoons.
Oh.. and another flash related thing: It would seem that flash muct now be searchable by browsers. I am actually pretty bad at marketing my site. I'm perhaps one of the worst Shmoozers out there which is kind of the way I prefer things. But having a flash site like mine be totally searchable will probably be pretty helpful.
