Sometimes in life we carry on with our jobs, studies, obligations and we forget to look after other important things.

Back in 2009, when I arrived in London, I started talking to Brona McVittie, a science communicator of the MRC where my wife works. At that time, I was trying to create flash games and she gave me the idea to create something to celebrate the 150 years since Darwin officially shared his theory of evolution by natural selection with the world! Well, after leaving the project on hold for a while we decided to go live with it (but I may try to create a better version of it later).
The game has sense only after you watch this movie:
Professor Corkbot’s Cat and the White Spider from Brona McVittie on Vimeo.
And here is the game!
I have just uploaded a new Flash example of a slideshow using Model View Controller (MVC), XML, OOP and actionscript 3. All the pictures are mine… all from taken when I was working in Serra do Cipó, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

*update: this is no longer working because twitter api has changed and I didn’t have time to take a look at it (not lazzy, just investing my time in other stuff :P). I’ll fix it when I have some spare time, sorry
I have just uploaded an example of a twitter search using Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder 4.
