Adobe MAX 2013: Miscellaneous Schizophrenia

I’m back from an interesting five days of Adobe MAX in Los Angeles and have a few thoughts I’d like to share. A quick reminder: this is the first MAX since the disastrous events of November 9th, 2011 occurred. It was definitely a different experience this year… but many elements of the conference were quite familiar as well. Overall, it was a great event and I’m happy to have been a part of it. I’ll try and break things down in the way with which I’ve categorized them in my mind the past few days. The Unfamiliar Adobe MAX is

Adobe MAX 2011: Reflections

I’ve been reflecting upon the past week at Adobe MAX all morning, along with catching up on a lot of work and have decided that I’m now at the point where it makes the most sense to put my thoughts down. I don’t want to write too soon, else there isn’t time to digest… but waiting too long will take my thoughts too far from the experiences I’m attempting to write about.
