Getting some perspective: Away3D 4.0 & friends

One full year after Adobe announced its plans to release the first accelerated 3D Flash Player, where have we arrived? There have been many experiments and upgrades, new platforms, frameworks, collaborations, opportunities, with the odd casualty along the way (ahem). But with the dust rapidly settling on these events, what is the 3D Flash community left with? If you are looking for some answers of the open-source variety, then Rob Bateman, co-founder of the Away3D engine, is here to help. Or at the very least, here to show a bunch of cool looking 3D sites and demos that will make everyone feel a lot better.
