I [heart] ArcGIS API for JavaScript

Did you all notice which ArcGIS Server API ESRI chose to use on their fancy, new website? No third-party plugins required.

Have you also noticed that the AGRC seems to be focusing on this API as well? I was talking with Bert Granberg and he used the phrase, "pure web".

I'm not saying that Flash and Silverlight are going away, but I just keep seeing more and more of the JavaScript API. With the recent backing of HTML5 by all of the industry's major players (even Adobe), I think that a "pure web" solution is going to continue to be a great choice in the future.

What do you all think? Who else is there in the region that's working with this API? We need to start a support group. ;)
