Today’s Doodle Tuesday is dark. I drew it about a year ago, but it is appropriate after this long and tragic weekend. I spent it watching the news and tweets about the events in Charlottesville. I spent it looking at the photos and videos of the white-supremacists, neo-nazis, and KKK people who exploded in stupid, absurd and meaningless violence. I looked at their expressions, their eyes, their open mouths screaming vile words. I looked at them holding torches, like a twisted historical reenactment without any historical value. ...

After a long history of security troubles, Adobe finally gave up. Yesterday, July 25th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the world found out when Flash will be officially no more: End of 2020.
In a historic joint announcement, Adobe, Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, Apple, and Facebook gave us the timeline for the slow death of the Flash phenomena. The plugs of the Flash life support will be pulled one by one, slowly. It will take another three years for it to die, after much suffering.
Flash has a tumultuous history. Its precursor was a product named SmartSketch, published by FutureWave Software. In 1995 SmartSketch became FutureSplash, and FutureWave attempted to sell it to Adobe. Adobe turned it down. Macromedia acquired FutureWave in 1996 and renamed it Macromedia Flash. ...
One of the recurring themes in my meeting doodles is what I call “sculptural images.” A sculptural image is a drawing of something that resembles a sculpture on a pedestal. This Doodle Tuesday I am publishing a sculptural image from 2014.
