When asked a question whether Flash is going to become irrelevant, Jay Sullivan, VP of Products, said:

"I think so in the long run. A lot of it has to do with HTML5. With Firefox 4, Internet Explorer 9, and Chrome, to the extent that we provide functionality in enough browsers, then the developers will switch over to HTML5, especially in mobile, where you can't have Flash popping up on every page just to do some little animation. The idea that you'd have to embed an entire instance of the Flash player just to play a 30 second audio clip? It's crazy."

I wish it would die quick and painless but it's probably going to be excruciatingly long and horrible. Even when everyone knows Flash should disappear. [Fast Company]
