    So nice to hear continued optimism and innovation from someone who feels like an old friend.

    It’s refreshing to listen someone with a mild tone of voice, thoughs and insights, like John Warnock. “Half artist, half technologist”, a real management intellectual.Sharp contrast with some of the industry’s self proclaimed leaders. Loved this interview.

    In 1984 I designed coupons for a direct mail firm. I loved Pagemaker 1.0 and above. Why can’t some of us stick with the old programs and be forever happy in our world. New computers force us to upgrade and in upgrading we lose the ability to do what we are used to. For example, If I upgraded to a Mac now, I would have to buy indesign just to make up a simple coupon layout form for a client.
