Which would be better to learn in the long run for visualizations, canvas or flash? : programming
So lets say I want to make some visualizations. Nothing serious and there really isn't a deadline. I just want to learn something new and I realized that making visualizations is something I've never really done before.

I have done plenty of java and php coding, for both ss and, in java's case, standalone programs. I know some javascript, but only what I learned in the process of usin jquery for a project or two. So I ask you now, which would serve better in the long run, learning more js for canvas, or learn as3 for flash?

How about if I want the visualizations to be interactive?
