In 2003, I was in Seattle getting ready to do a presentation on Flash video at Digital Design World. Jim Heid, the conference organizer, saw the title slide of the presentation and mentioned that I might be facing a rather tough crowd. I looked out over audience members, sized them up, and told Jim I had his back covered. He said he wasn’t too sure about that and pointed to the title on my screen: “QuickTime is dead.” Looking out into the darkened room, I watched about 200 people in the audience open their PowerBooks; hundreds of bright white Apple logos stared back at me. It was indeed going to be a tough crowd. Nobody really expected the stranglehold that Apple, Microsoft , and Real had on the web streaming market in 2003 to be broken. Y et by spring 2005, just 18 months after that present- tion, that is exactly what happened. Those three web video delivery technologies practically v- ished and were replaced almost entirely by Flash video. This is not to say QuickTime and Windows Media are dead technologies. They aren’t by a long shot, but when it comes to putting video on the Web, the Flash Player has rapidly become the only game in town. Before I get going, you have to understand how Apple, Microsoft, and Real “lost” the market.

About the author

The career of Adam Thomas can best be defined as a successful hobby. Having an early interest in computers and being mostly self-taught, he attended Humber College in Toronto, studying computer information systems. Soon after his graduation in 2001, Adam was invited back to his school to be a professor of rich media and Web development. Alongside teaching, he runs a successful web studio called Robin Hood Tech. Adam takes pride in employing former students who he has had the privilege of teaching and giving them the opportunity to gain experience and excel in a competitive field. Adam is cofounder of the "Robin Hood" business model, which advocates for justice in business. Adam strives for integrity and simplicity but his true motivation is his wife and family who are daily reminders of love, faith and blessing.

The first two times Jesus says “I am,” no predicate nominative follows. Remember seventh-grade English class: a predicative nominative is a noun that follows a linking verb. The first time, he says “I Am–the one who speaks with you” to the woman at the well. The second time, he says “I Am. Don’t be afraid” to the disciples. In both cases the words stands alone: I AM. These statements are declarations of God’s very being, and they appear several more times over the course of the Gospel. A broader statement cannot be made. “I AM” is as close as language can get to universality and eternity. One of the markers of this revelation is a second kind of “I am” statement. This second kind takes a piece of the great “I AM” and fills in the blank that our sense of curiosity wills to be there. When Jesus says, “I am the bread/light/shepherd/vine/___,” he is comparing himself to those things. In these “I am ________” statements, Jesus discloses a piece of his divine identity, enough for us to hear, swallow, and digest over the course of a lifetime.

Session 1 - I Am the Bread of Life. Nourished to Be Nourishment.
Session 2 - I Am the Light of the World. Turning to the Light.
Session 3 - I Am the Good Shepherd. Cast Out of Complacency.
Session 4 - I Am the Vine. Connecting the Branches.

Each session begins with an opening prayer, followed by the text of the day being read aloud. The group will enjoy a 5-7-minute video where Adam shares his thought on the Scripture and its "unusual" focus. The group will discuss the readings for the day then close with prayer.

The new and exciting aspect of this particular Bible study series is the blending of traditional weekly Sunday school with modern, daily-delivered digital content, which will keep readers connected with the material throughout the week. Between the daily communication and the group gatherings, participants will immerse themselves in the Good News.

The emails that accompany this study are crucial to the small-group experience and leaders should notify small-group members to subscribe for their emails at least 1-2 days in advance of the first gathering.
