Shockwave and Flash Still Getting Confused

I was at the GameHotel presentation at the Game Developers Conference ( It is this “show” where they interview different “cool” people about new things in fashion and games. They use a hotel metaphor, like when a new interviewee is called to the stage, they say that someone is “checking in”. One of the interviewees came up and said that he wondered if they were inspired by Habbo Hotel, which he then called a “Flash Game.” Flash! Oy. This was in front of hundreds of people, including some of the most influential people in the game development industry.
