I mentioned on Spoon mailing list how good it would be if we could organize
a website something like 'Flex showcase' in which we can write about latest
Flex updates, components, libraries, "success stories" but mostly that
could be a place where we can present Flex projects -  enterprise apps,
entertaiment, mobile aps, you name it. Connect this with Twitter, LinkedIn,
private blogs and websites. I would really like to be involved in a project
such as this one. I'm not sure how much will I be able to contribute in
Flex code optimization but writing and posting - that I can do every day :)

I don't know what's the status with Flex.org. Will it be donated to Spoon
or Apache or who will run it in the future?
There is Flex showcase but I believe it's not really up-to-date. And
success stories on Adobe.com are pretty boring material :)

Cheers,
Ivan
