Bom Dia

Greetings, once again, from the Southern Hemisphere. After 15 hours in the “Surly Skies”, we landed in Sao Paulo on Saturday afternoon, did a bit of sightseeing over the weekend, and I had my first meeting this morning, at TV Globo (Brazil’s largest broadcaster). I visited the on-air graphics department for their news division, which is a large room of about 20 people living & breathing After Effects 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They hadn’t seen AE7 yet, so it was a session of great excitement. It’s really fun to show the new goodies to people for the first time.

Writing to you now from the Adobe office in Sao Paulo. Anne-Lise has the camera, so I can’t show you any pictures yet, but I should be able to upload some tonight. This is one HUGE, incredibly diverse city. There was a big soccer match here yesterday, so we got to see that flavor of insanity first-hand. I can’t imagine what would happen in the US if fans started lighting flares in the stands as they do here all the time. It is a “melting pot” in the stadium, though, because all fans, rich or poor, all sit in the same section and cheer together. Nice.
