Up to my neck, but still kicking!

Ok, I’ve passed out again for the past few weeks (so much for my new year’s resolution… i can’t sustain it when push comes to shove). And yes it is SHOVING. CS3 end user shows for South East Asia is right around the corner and the pressure isn’t justs on, it’s haunting me like crazy. There’s so much to prepare, so much to show, so little time (isn’t it always the case)… Nonetheless, the word is *exciting* and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

In fact, I shouldn’t even be too stressed, some very good Adobe friends of mine are coming to town to share their genius and their wisdom. Look out for Bob Donlon, Tim Cole, Brian Chau, and Thomas DeMeo… the CS3 launch is gonna be a party you wouldn’t want to miss. 

So if you haven’t registered yet, better get your mouse clicking on here. There is a cap and the registration will close (we have to follow conference hall rules, and it says, we cannot fill a room with too much people lest it bursts).

Once the ball starts rolling, and once you see what we’ve got for you on our biggest release ever, the only thing that is probably going through your head is "why did Adobe take so long to make something like this". If you just can’t wait, we’ve got some e-seminars available for viewing online found here. But if you’d like to view some cool stuff on your own time, you can opt for our On-Demand Seminars.

Our first stop is Indonesia. Jakarta here we come!

Possibilities with InDesign Server

The InDesign Server Product team has been working very hard to put together very good information found on and one of the really inspiring information isn’t really about the technology overview (of course, let’s admit that is interesting on its own). The partner showcase portion highlights just how much you can do with InDesign Server. And while we are constantly looking out for partners who would like to work with us, (see notes from mnr), there are quite a handful of partners that are showcased. One of which is Peter Schmidt Group

Peter Schmidt Group
For more than 30 years, the Peter Schmidt Group (PSG) has been producing successful results in the fields of brand consulting, corporate design, and packaging design. PSG’s success lies in the interactive processes of its team of specialists, its collaborative design processes, attentive client consultation services, and development of the best possible designs. Peter Schmidt Group provides the iBrams integrated brand management system with a web-based front end that enables dealers and branch offices to adapt templates, creating marketing materials that meet their individual needs while safeguarding corporate identity requirements. The newest version of the system fully supports Adobe InDesign Server software.

We are really not talking about InDesign Server as a product, but a core component of a solution that will be finally delivered to the customer. And as usual, when we talk about solutions, it’s always about providing our customers better ways of working (and that could translate into many ways too!).
