Episode 1 - The beginning

On this episode of Art Zen we discuss the way the internet is changing print, CSS3 & HTML5 and the eventual death of flash.  We also talk a bit about how the iPad is changing the way we design for the web. Actually, I'm not gonna lie. We talk about the past a lot in this first episode. But you can't know about the future if you don't re-live the past right?
