  • Hooggebrugge has fun with Flash. Black and shite moving sketches by the trillion, with sound. He experiments and publishes the products of his learned skills online.
  • Amaztype samples popular search phrases, but that's not the good bit. The good bit is when you mouseover their word area and see Actionscript applied.
