CTIA: Day Two

Ok, so I’m a little late on my blog for Day 2 of CTIA. It has a good reason, but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Hey, I don’t make the rules.
Anyway, yesterday was very productive. Lots of meetings with partners, customers, and other parties interested in what the Verizon news really means. All good stuff.
Here’s the big things discussed that stick out in my mind:
– Everyone is talking about “killer content”, but no one has found the right recipe. Spent a lot of time with one of our top Flash Lite developers, Smashing Ideas, figuring out what we can do to build the next generation of great apps.
– Working together is “in”. There was lots of talk of collaboration between people that you would have though didn’t have much in common or could be considered competitors. If you check the attendee list of our party, (and no I won’t give it to you), you’d see it had people that could have been considered competitors seeking ways to work with us on the Flash platform in many interesting ways.
– While the Verizon agreement didn’t say much in detail, people are making some great assumptions on our behalf. I can’t tell you how many people said “wow, this means X, Y, and Z for you and that’s HUGE.” Also, there was some analyst saying this validates that mobile will be a $1B business for Adobe. Gosh, I hope so, and more.
Signing off for now …
The night was also capped by a very nice, refined party put on by our team. It really went off well, and a good percentage of the crowd came up saying what a fun time they had. The food was great, the conversation was good, and it looked like everyone was having a blast.
