Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite Seminar




Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to attend an awesome Adobe seminar which talked about ways to create mobile apps using InDesign. While it was not the most robust, this was probably the most informative seminar I’ve ever attended, to say the least. This is particularly exciting to me because InDesign is my first preference when it comes to Adobe design software; there are times when I go weeks without even opening another program from Creative Suite.

Like many others we jumped on Twitter, major news sites, and our phones to check on friends and family. Some of us had friends running, many of us had friends helping out along the route or waiting in the grandstands. We were lucky and everyone we knew was OK, at least physically. I think it’s fair to say that few people in Boston were OK emotionally or are feeling OK today.

What happened was scary, sad, tragic, infuriating, and shocking. I felt in a daze for an hour or so, with pangs of memories from living in New York in the aftermath of 9/11. I am not a crier but I really wanted to…
