Adobe MAX 2008 San Francisco

Woah. I didn’t know Adobe had peo­ple call­ing their list for their upcom­ing Adobe MAX in San Fran­cis­co:

MAX is an expe­ri­ence unlike any oth­er — an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect with thou­sands of design­ers, devel­op­ers, part­ners, exec­u­tives, and Adobe staff for edu­ca­tion, inspi­ra­tion, and com­mu­ni­ty. MAX 2008/2009 will be held in San Fran­cis­co, Milan, and Tokyo. Be sure to mark your cal­en­dar for this impor­tant glob­al event.

It seems that I was able to put my Grand Cen­tral phone num­ber when I signed up for noti­fi­ca­tion to future Adobe prod­ucts. Right on.

Here’s the voice­mail from GC:

Pret­ty clear, and script­ed =)

Any­ways, you heard Lin­da, if you are inter­est­ed in going, do give her a call. Here’s what you’ll need to know:

  • (877) 451‑1592
  • The event will be held on Novem­ber 16–19, 2008.
  • There will be 2 loca­tions for MAX, Moscone West and the San Fran­cis­co Mar­riott. Look­ing at the agen­da though, it seems most of it will be at Moscone.
  • Ear­ly Bird Dis­count ends August 31st. It is $200-off the reg­u­lar price if you choose to do so.

Kounandi

While read­ing my emails, I got the TED newslet­ter and read about Rokia Tra­ore per­form­ing “Kounan­di”. Then from the com­ments below the video/performance’s post, got linked to a movie also called “Kounan­di” (via Emi­ly McManus).

Also learned that “Kounan­di” is a name that means “one who brings luck”. The more you know…

@Media 2007 — Time to Learn More!

@media 2007 - San Francisco

I was for­tu­nate enough to be spon­sored by M.com/Monster World­wide to attend @media 2007 up here in SF.

@media: For for­ward-think­ing web design and devel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als, @media, one of the world’s fore­most and well received web design con­fer­ences, comes to the West Coast for the first time this May 24th and 25th.

The unique pre­sen­ta­tions from lead­ing indus­try experts will inspire and edu­cate, cov­er­ing a mul­ti­tude of aspects of best prac­tice web design, dis­cussing top­ics such as user-inter­face design, acces­si­bil­i­ty, seman­tic markup, CSS, JavaScript, and ajax.

Woohoo! I can’t wait to get my badge! haha =)
