Helping Produce O’Reilly Ignite at Adobe Max

Posted by bryanzug - 2007/10/01

I am in Chicago this week to help produce the O’Reilly Ignite event at Adobe’s MAX conference.

What a blast.

It’s great to see something that started as a grassroots geek gathering in Seattle begin to flow out to national conferences like this. And, I’m working in a new role — slide producer instead of video.

The folks and sessions here at MAX are amazing — some highlights so far —

  1. Brazillian BBQ with guys from Aviary and hearing about the online app suite that seems like it will be the gateway toolset for the Threadless generation.

  2. Meeting someone from Microsoft’s developer tools team who is here to learn what Adobe is doing well in the developer space. Seemed genuinely interested and I continue to think that this ongoing listening that both Adobe and Microsoft seem to be doing with one another is good for the Rich Internet Application industry as a whole.

  3. Laughing out loud with John Wilker at the keynote today as Kevin Lynch mentioned he wanted to show a pretty cool site he’d come across that is using Flash video. He then brings up [this site]((http://halo3.com/believe/shell.html) promoting Microsoft’s Halo 3 — a tongue in cheek dig at Microsoft not dogfooding it’s own Silverlight multimedia plugin on its high profile sites.

  1. Hey Brian, it was great to meet you and Brady as well! I hope we’ll get to hang out with you guys again at the Web 2.0 conference in a couple of weeks.
