The “Ted Call”

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Adobe hired me to write and produce a few scripts for their Adobe MAX conference.  But, things aren’t going as planned.

Adobe CS3 on Snow Leopard, or how I learned to love flip on chrome

Friday, August 28th, 2009

If your internet connection seemed a tiny bit slower yesterday, it was no-doubt caused by the whole CS3 on Snow Leopard… thing (start here if you want).  At first I thought the whole thing was handled wrong… and then it exploded on twitter (perhaps not even peaking yet see search) … but then I took another 2 seconds to really ponder and study the event and I am just fascinated in what everyone could maybe learn.  If I explained how everyone SHOULD have behaved I’d be doing it now–in retrospect… with all the benefits hindsight provides.  After “Hoss-gate” and “that dude at TED showing Papervision and AR-gate” I guess it’s unlikely things will change real soon.  Anyway, I had to add SOME fuel to the fire… hopefully the analogous satire is understandable:

Beavis and Butthead go to MAX

Friday, August 28th, 2009

The first of several videos related to the upcoming Adobe MAX conference.  If you visit then click the pause button (which remains invisible until you wave your cursor over the self-starting with-audio video piece)… then click Brett Rampata (which is the 4th from the last) you can hear him discussing an AIR app he worked on for the Jackass TV show.  Watch his little interview first for the complete context but this Beavis and Butthead parody was truly inspired by Brett.

Videos from FITC Awards Show

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

I had a blast doing the FITC Awards Show this year–I’ll post a compilation of video clips of the live event (and intersperse the full clips).   In the meantime, here’s a playlist of the introductions and interstitials.  They’re a little out of context in this form–but more soon:

Handbill Helps Economy

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Because my Wanted Poster was getting dated, and in advance of the upcoming conference season, I’ve produced a new handbill.  Check it out here or catch me in person and I’m sure I’ll hand you one.

Adobe Premiere CS4 FLV FAIL

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

I find this new video of mine–the shortest ever  at 9 seconds–to be very funny.  It’s so perfect and interesting as I didn’t have to do anything!  Just try using .flv files in Premiere…

Featured in Flasher Magazine

Friday, January 30th, 2009

I’m honored that Lee Brimelow included an interview of me in his latest issue of Flasher Magazine. He’s only up to issue 2, but I think he’s really got something good there.  Check it out.  I start at 15:30 but the other features are worth watching.
