Fireworks Jam Session in one hour!

Well its been awhile where I needed to make an announcement about the Fireworks Jam Session so here it is in all its glory. We start in one hour today at 11am PST.

On another note, I was concerned about this Fireworks user before we shipped CS3 and happy to see we saved his career by shipping Fireworks with CS3! We are actively working on the next version so don’t worry, Fireworks has a great home in Adobe’s ecosystem.
