Acrobat.com Presentations


From the team that brought you Buzzword comes Adobe’s new online presentation tool, Adobe Presentations onto labs. It is great to see this online and even better to know the engineering quality put into the app itself. It goes without saying that Buzzword really redefined document editing in browser and the same is true with Presentations. The presentations app has gone by codename “Boardroom” during its 2 year development and having watched this project from inception it is great to see a nice balance of features. Overall a presentation editor is a document editor and with Buzzword at its core Presentations is built on a solid foundation.

Try out a sample presentation

Congrats to the Presentations Team on their labs launch.

Next stop Excel!

MAX 2009 Site Visit


On Tuesday 32 members of the MAX team visited Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) and LA Live in preparation for MAX. The site visit is the first time we get the entire team together and we go through every detail of how to organize the physical event into the space. LA Live and LACC are at the center of a revitalization project in downtown Los Angeles. Over the past 3 years nearly all the surrounding buildings have been renovated and many new lots apartments have sprung up. The center sits in 4 parts, LACC (big convention center), Staples Arena (Where the LA Lakers play), Nokia Theater (concert hall), and LA Live (restaurants and entertainment venues). One thing that stood out this year is Nokia theater. It is easily the largest space we have ever done keynotes/awards/sneaks in and it should be a great venue.













We really have a great team working on MAX this year and combined with a great venue, MAX 2009 will be the best one yet.

See you at MAX 2009!

Cheers,

Ted :)
