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:

The punches that Apple Inc. is throwing in its fight against Adobe Systems Inc. are beginning to land, prompting some companies to shift away from Adobe's video and animation technology and forcing Web designers to work with competing standards.

Programmers and Web designers say clients increasingly are asking that their websites or applications be compatible with Apple's iPhone and iPad. 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:

It's a hassle for developers to build apps and Web sites for Apple's devices separately. But Zach Williams, director at Venveo LLC, a Web-design shop in Blacksburg, Va., says he has little choice because the iPhone is so popular with clients.
