Adobe needs users for a workflow study – get an Amazon gift card

Adobe is looking for participants for a brief (~1 hour) online work observation and interview. Compensation will be a $100 Amazon gift card.

There are two sets of criteria, each applying to a different study. Read the criteria carefully before responding. Also, it is important to indicate in the subject line of your response which one of the two studies you meet the criteria for and wish to participate in.

There will be 2 studies of Flash workflows. One is about deploying video content in Flash. The other is about creating a button to perform some control of the Timeline. The studies will be conducted over the telephone and Adobe Connect (software for screen sharing).
