New digs

(repost due to blogger error)

A whirwind year and a ton of water under the bridge, and not just in the creek that runs through our new property.

I wanted to let readers know that I was leaving Adobe, and I was going to be moving my blog as part of that move - probably not the wisest move to have a corporate blog in today's world.

Anyway, I am pretty pumped to be back in the internal design and development saddle after spending 7 years helping to build and launch great platforms for other companies, like Edge, Key Media, Microsoft and Adobe.

In this next leg of the journey, I am pulling together an awesomely talented x-functional team to build a best of breed software marketing, distribution, registration and purchasing center. I will tell you more about this later...

For now, I am sad to leave Adobe. I made a lot of great friends there and together we did some really amazing work. I think the Flex product lineup is super-solid and I definitely plan on using it for the journey I am on now.

Enjoy Max!

I really wanted to publicly thank a few people:

- Duane Nickull for his relentless pursuit of architectural excellence and hard work on LiveCycle
- Ben Forta for all his hard work on Max and the brilliant RIAForge
- Mike Potter for all the amazing PHP stuff and the AEDP program
- Ted Patrick for, FXT and some stuff he is still working on
- Marcel Boucher and Greg Wilson for the toolbox
- Hong Qiu for getting the developer centers in order
- James Ward for all the hard work on the JSR, Oracle, awesome demos and more!

Keep at it guys!!

Thanks, Ben for the iRiver. My son is really looking forward to it. I wasn't able to hook up with Ted Patrick or Mike Potter until after Ted had left, but I do want to thank you for making my 10 year old so excited.

I'd love to get your personal email and or phone if you get a sec. I'm at, or 770-414-5007 x 101.
