Across from Near AIR park at MAX — short interview = free book

I’m across from AIR park at MAX again, and if you have time to answer some questions about your community involvement and learning (maybe 10 minutes), I’ll reward you with a choice of a free book (we’ll mail them out right after MAX). You can choose from a wide range of books, so it might be worth your time.

I’m in the “Talk to Me” t-shirt (light blue), and have a MacBook and some pink flyers in front of me. I’m on one of the benches against the wall across from AIR park, go to the top of the escalators to Level 3 and look to your left.

MAX 2007 Sneak Peeks – Comprehensive notes

A lot of notes were taken at the MAX 2007 Sneak Peeks (and MAX Awards, and Ignite Awards) – you can read them here:

Liveblogs of Day 1 and Day 2 general session keynotes at MAX 2007

I have finished Liveblogging the Day 1 and Day 2 general session keynotes at MAX 2007. You can find a disgusting number of notes on both of the keynotes over at my Web and Video blog here:

Do you like getting free books? You’re at MAX 2007? Find me Wed morning.

I’m giving away free books to people who bear talking to me for a short period of time (maybe 10 -15 minutes). Good books too – new stuff from Peachpit and O’Reilly. I’ll be around the conference tomorrow, but I’ll be attending a number of sessions so I might be harder to find. However, I will spend a good deal of time Wednesday morning looking for people who will talk to me, so I can give them a free book for their efforts. I will be in or near AIR park, and I will probably have a pink flyer and possibly a MacBook around me somewhere. I will also be wearing the t-shirt as detailed here:

Find me, talk a bit about the community and your experiences, and get yourself a free book.

Free (good, recent) books in exchange for a short chat – find me at MAX 2007 right now outside AIR park

If you don’t mind talking to me in exchange for a free book (good recent O’Reilly and Peachpit titles available on a range of products/topics), come find me right now outside of AIR park at MAX 2007. I’m on one of the benches against the wall, across the way from AIR park. After you get off the escalators, look to your left for the girl in the “talk to me” tshirt, MacBook, and the pink flyer.

Total longshot, I know – but if you read this and are interested, you can find me here until 1pm. Answer some short questions and score a book.

Liveblogging MAX 2007 Day 1 General Session (keynote) at Webvideoblogger

I will be liveblogging the Day 1 General Session keynote on my other blog, WebVideoBlogger.

Start watching/refreshing over at: MAX 2007 – General Session Day 1

Starting at 9:30am, Chicago time (in another 20 minutes or so).

I’m liveblogging from the employee overflow room (we’re not allowed into the real deal)… so we’ll see how it goes.

Find me at MAX 2007, answer some questions, we’ll send you a free book

That’s right – you’ll have to talk to me, but the payoff is a book on a product (you’ll get to choose from a selection of stuff). There are books on everything from Acrobat to After Effects to Photoshop to Soundbooth. So it’s not all that bad!

Our team is looking for your input on how you use community-based sites out there (software related, or not). What do you like about the sites? What kind of features do you use on a community-based site, or not use? How do you like to learn about products, and interact with other parts of the Adobe community? That kind of stuff, and more.

If you talk to us, even for only a little while, we’ll send you a book.

I’ll be easy to find in a moderately-tacky and bright t-shirt, which I will picture below. My co-worker Diana will be wearing shirts of the same design, and doing the same thing as I’ll be doing (but much better, as she’s a talented researcher and I’m not).

If you want, ping me here using your email (won’t appear on the blog, but I’ll see it) and I’ll shoot you an response and we can figure out a good time to meet. I’ll also blog my whereabouts once I get situated at MAX and figure out my schedule a bit more.

Diana and I will be wearing one of these t-shirts (or one in green):

So… find me (below) in Chicago!
