Retiring this blog

This blog is being retired, as I’m moving to a new position at Adobe and the Design Center now has new editor blogs.

Updates will be posted at http://luanneseymour.wordpress.com, which is where you can also submit feedback using comments. As always, you can also send feedback using links posted throughout Adobe Design Center.

For my banter on Flash (yup, going back to Flash), you can watch http://www.adobe.com/go/jdehaan and soon http://www.deseloper.com.
