Hi Swen,

IMO, examples are separate from a showcase.  If you want to create
examples of how to do things, having your own blog is great and maybe we
can link to it on our site.  We will probably build up a set of examples
for our getting started pages and we will need a new set for FlexJS, but
those examples will hopefully be reviewed before publication.  If you want
to submit those kinds of examples, adding them to a JIRA issue would be
great as well.

A showcase, IMO, is different.  It is a list of medium to large
applications that companies are willing to say are in production and
saving them time and money.  IOW, testimonials.  A key problem in the
Adobe days was that all of these showcase apps ran behind corporate
firewalls so you could only show a screenshot and describe the app.  I'm
hoping we'll find more showcase apps that folks can touch and try from the
showcase web page.  That is certainly one of the FlexJS goals: to lower
the footprint of the app such that it loads fast enough that folks can
build consumer-facing web apps without first-timers taking the RSL or
large SWF download hit.
