Reading the technology tea-leaves: Is a Rich Internet Application in your future?

Let's admit it. The HTML page-centric model does not scale to full-fledged web applications very well. This panel will consider what lies beyond HTML and venture into the new, exciting world of Rich Internet Applications or RIAs.

The discussion will focus on new techology platforms for creating RIAs and what advantages (if any) RIAs offer users. Is there a business need for RIAs? What is the return on investment for such systems? What are the design challenges? What usability problems arise when people accustomed to a page-centric model use such systems?

By the end of the evening, you will have a good idea of what RIAs are and whether you should be considering an RIA for your next web application.
