RIA Radio and Envato are Joining Forces

If you’re not already familiar with RIA Radio, then I would highly recommend that you check ‘em out. It’s a fantastic podcast run by Garth Braithwaite, Stacey Mulchay (bitchWhoCodes), Leif Wells, and Zach Stepek all about the Flash and development community. If you’ve been to many Flash conferences, you’ve probably seen them podcasting live from the event.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Garth the other day and we got talking. Here’s a paraphrased version of how the conversation went:

RIA Radio is all about improving the community through open discussion and Envato is all about improving community by helping devs learn and make money – our companies should be intimate friends.

Flash Website Review #1

Hello community members and blog readers. A new series has made its way to the envato blog. I am one of its authors, Aw_Shucks and I’m an active member of the Envato community, based primarily at ActiveDen. My counterpart, BigZ who is also an ActiveDen author, will be working with me in order to produce this new series. What will this new series be about, you may ask? Well, in short our series will be about interactive sites around the web that BigZ and I will be reviewing. The point of the series is to bring to your attention current trends and innovative concepts of interactive websites and that we hope to inspire you to make a move towards making better files.

The first entry of our series is a sort of “test type”, which is usually the next stage of development after that of the prototype. (The first stage was planning. Then the “prototype” came by creating a working presentation ). But I’m sure that we’ll be changing a few things so as to improve the quality and message of our posts. So be ready to see something a little different and better as we post more throughout the series. With this in mind we introduce our first entry in the envato blog. We hope you like it.

Gadgets, break dancing, a Tuts+ education, and being a full-time Envato author. Today we meet Christopher Honninger (crozer) from GraphicRiver. And AudioJungle, ThemeForest and VideoHive.

Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from, what do you do for a living?

Hey there, thanks for having me here! Well, I am an 18-year-old computer enthusiast who has a lot of love for design, web development, visual effects and 3D graphics.

I was born in Cali, Colombia, but moved to Lima, Peru at the age of three. I always had this interest for technical stuff and sports. But since I grew up throughout an era of computer technology and gadgets, my mere ‘technical’ interest evolved into something much more computer-related. I was fascinated by programs and digital interfaces, although I had no idea what was really behind them.

I am now an (almost) full-time ThemeForest, GraphicRiver, AudioJungle and VideoHive author and a freelancer.
