only reason for spine'less' was a slipping in a centralized identification database.
Without doctor support they will choose another avenue, but for now the tides of oppression are on the back ebb.
The health profession does need IT, but it needs the right kind, a database on people is not it.
Collaboration tools, and databases on different treatments and tests are what they need, amongst a plethora of other knowledge boosting and mistake lowering tools.
The fact I had an ingrown toenail, and halitosis in 1985 does not need to be on the internet, whoops :)
Flash has always been a security risk
Along with Java Applets, Flash has always been seen as a security risk. Most secure operations block them on the firewall.
Personally I do use flash for streaming media, but it should never be integral to a site.
This is why having something like ogg vorbis becoming the standard multimedia delivery format is important. Most developers want something that turns the static web into something more akin to a functional networked program, and we need that to be an open format, primarily for security. Java whilst I think it may have become more open, still has a remit that is too far reaching, and it rides over browser security, it can only be used really in intranets.
