Tomorrow I’ll be flying to Los Angeles to attend this year’s Adobe MAX conference, which runs through the 8th. If you’re attending please say hello—and join me late in the day on Tuesday when I’ll be taking part in the “MAX Sneak Peeks” session (hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt!). I’ll have a few minutes on stage to preview a new product that I’ve been collaborating on with the Adobe team for the better part of this year. I can’t say too much about it now, except to reveal that it builds directly on a lot of the things I’ve learned over the past few years about the intersection of mobile and creativity. I’m really excited about it, and after the announcement on Tuesday I’ll write more about it here.
It’s been several years since I’ve been in L.A., even though I have family who live just an hour south in Orange County. If all goes according to plan, I’ll be joining some friends of mine for a 10-mile walk through parts of L.A. as part of that day’s CicLAvia events. If you’re in L.A. on Sunday and feel like joining the walk, send me a tweet and I’ll look for you!+
