To borrow from Mark Twain, “rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated”. So now that you know I’m still here at Adobe; the next question(s) that come to mind might be: 1) what am I up to these days?, and/or 2) What exactly is a Product Manager of Interactive Futures? (what a mysterious sounding job – wish my business card said that). Well, for the moment I’m still in super secret squirrel mode working on a new project here at Adobe for creative professionals. I like to think of it as a blend of some of Adobe’s best technologies (and people – excluding myself) in the areas of interactivity, video, and motion. If you want me to say more, you’ll either need to tickle it out of me (or ply me with expensive tequila). Or who knows maybe a glimpse (if you blink, you might miss it) of the future will be revealed at a trade show that you happen to be at.
When I worked on After Effects, I used to playfully say; “If doesn’t move it’s dead”. I think I need help with a new mantra; If it isn’t interactive, it’s_________. I could use help filling in the blank.
Anyway, just wanted to take this opportunity to say hello and that I look forward to starting a dialog with y’all here in addition to my “Official Adobe Blog” which has been on an unplanned hiatus.
