Can we get a blogging Cardinal?

In a few short days, the largest religious organization in the world will be choosing a new leader. I’m speaking about the Roman Catholic Church, of course.

The church is taking extreme pains to ensure privacy during the selection process, and probably rightly so. The dry facts are available just about anywhere.

But wouldn’t it be cool if there was a neo-techie cyber-Catholic cardinal among those voting for the new pope? I’d love to read a blow-by-blow account of choosing a new pontiff.

Flash versus HTML

Well, well, well, the debate heats up.

I noticed Zeldman’s report from SXSW on the Flash versus HTML game show.

I’ve previously written that Flash and Ajax are starting to compete and noticed that toolkits for making Ajax easier are just starting to come out. The HTML crowd above included, as Zeldman says, designers of apps like Gmail and Flickr.

Very interesting – and it looks like there’s no clear-cut winner yet (if ever there will be). The plot thickens!
