Tim Buntel and I met with Federal Computer Week a short while back to talk to them about ColdFusion (and the release of Flex integration in CFMX 7.0.2). The resulting story is now online.
That quote attributed to me is a little odd, I think they misunderstood part of my Flex demo and attributed it to ColdFusion.
The story also includes a quote from Yefim Natis, V.P. and analyst at Gartner, who said explained that ColdFusion is always an option for high-productivity government projects, especially those that are data-intensive.
