Venveo Quoted in the Wall Street Journal

Zachary Williams, Creative Director at VT KnowledgeWorks member company Venveo, was quoted in "Apple Wins Ground in Fight Over Flash," by Ben Worthen in the 5/21/10 issue of The Wall Street Journal.

Here's the article's opening:

Those sites can't be built with Adobe's Flash technology, which is used widely for online video and animation but which Apple has banned from its devices.

And here's the section with Zach's quote:
