It’s a Breeze

Today I presented my second “Breezo”, which is a Breeze Presentation (Breeze+Preso=Breezo). My teeth are aching just from thinking about trying to read that last sentence out loud.

Breeze is a product from the former Macromedia side of the house, and it allows for some really sophisticated real-time collaborative conferencing over IP.

Today I showed After Effects to Macromedia User Group leaders and other company partners — it all happened at 9 in the morning Pacific Time (where I live), and I was barely awake, sitting at my kitchen table drinking coffee, and speaking “& showing AE to lord knows how many people, all over the world. It’s a really strange experience since it’s just you alone talking for an hour, and then at the end you do a brief Q&A in Breeze’s Chat Pot, and it occurs to you that all of these people have just been listening to every word you’ve said, and seen everything you’ve done on your computer screen the whole time.

As you’d imagine, Adobe has adopted Breeze for all our internal meetings. It’s a really fascinating piece of technology.
