War of the Screens

If you’d have asked me a few years ago about what Apple would be moving towards, yesterday’s announcements on the Apple TV would probably have gotten the most focus from me, as they’re exactly what I predicted they should be. While making the Apple TV a glorified Airport Express seems pretty obvious when you think »

On Apple and Flash

A lot has been said about the ongoing ‘war’ between Apple and Adobe (with Apple refusing Adobe’s Flash player on its mobile devices). Emotions run high, words like ‘open’ are flung about like monkey poo, and everyone seems to be able to spout an opinion on it, so… me too. First of all, I think »

Beginning 2010, ending Doctor Who

So, we’ve ended the naughts and moved on to the respectable and grown-up sounding double digits. We’re now in the age of space colonies and hovercars, aliens hanging about*, and underwater cities, and we’d better enjoy them since we’re all dying in two years… Or maybe that’s just the imaginings of modern-day sci-fi, where everything »

Return from Comic-Con

I figured I might as well jot down a few things/impressions from the event. Here are a few quick takes: Celebrities: lots of famous people are at this event, so it’s hard not to see someone that’s recognizable. Some that I saw: Seth Green, John Landis, Stan Lee, Scott Ian, Bruce Campbell, and a dozen »

Offense and Industry Part II

I had a feeling that I’d want to add a bit more to what I wrote yesterday, as it’s a complicated subject filled with a lot of tangents (me?? tangents??) and, quite frankly, emotion. The sad thing is, none of this is exceptionally new, and it usually follows a predictable pattern: person does something that »

Offense and Industry

So there’s been a bit of a brouhaha over in the Flash/dev community over a presentation that was given at Flashbelt; unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend (so I can’t speak from firsthand experience about what happened), but I wanted to chime in on some of what’s being said – and not being said – »

Speaking at CF_United

I’ll be speaking at this year’s CF_United conference in August – details about the conference can be found on their site (cfunited.com, I believe). As usual, my presentation focuses a little more on the business/workflow side of things, but in lieu of my usual management or marketing/video/training/content-centric spiels, this one focuses on process improvement by »

iLife 09 Review

Apple recently began shipping iLife ’09, the latest update to their multimedia funhouse suite of software. While it’s still too early to provide in-depth feedback, my initial observations and product-specific reviews are provided here. »

Adobe MAX 2008

Adobe’s MAX conference has finally come and gone for this year, so here are my reflections on it – highlights, things that could have gone better, etc. (all with the benefit of hindsight, of course…) While I was in town a little early to catch up with people, we got the event started on Sunday »
