As part of a week experiment with my good friend, Mr. Dave Marr, we dove headfirst into playing with the new peer-to-peer technologies afforded to us by the latest Flash Player.

In the past, if you wanted a Flash application on one machine to talk to another, there was a heavy sigh, and the matter of setting up a Flash Media Server always ended the discussion.

With the latest Flash Player, they’ve removed that dependency, and have made it super simple for one-to-many (well, 16 maximum users) communication.

Our experiment, which I lazily dubbed ‘Convo’, allows users to chat with one another by simply going to a webpage and entering a group id.

So, go and try it out.  I’ll be the one breathing heavy on the other end…
