Adobe is making history..

Welcome to life baby!

In 2005 we were celebrating the marriage of Macromedia and Adobe.
These parents have made a beautiful home to host the conception and the birth
of a child that would change the web and the desktop.
This child was born today.
The 02/25/2008 is the first official day of Air’s life.

New York Times has posted a beautiful article about the history of this baby
directly from the mouth of his biological father.
Read it here.


Ted Patrick has created a video project called 30onAir for the Flex 3 and Air releases.

You can create a video (I already did!) of approximately 30″ and uploaded on youTube.
Don’t forget to tag it “30onAir” so the team can find it.
You can record your self, upload an animation or whatever you like but you have to answer
one of the questions: Why Air, why Flex, Why Flash, Why Ajax.. I think you got it, right?

Those videos will be presented on the 30onAir website and according to Ted on the
The guys at Adobe have some really cool cameras to share to the best videos.
(Although I wouldn’t consider it in case you live in Greece, because we have
the worst Customs policy but this is another story..)

Have a look at the videos, they have a lot of fun and they are the best way
to introduce the Adobe Air to people that have no idea what is it all about..
