Mark Hamburg returns to Adobe
Well, that didn’t take so long, did it? :-)
After 17 years on the Photoshop & Lightroom teams, Mark Hamburg left Adobe last year to join Microsoft and work on improving the Windows user experience (as he found it “really annoying”). I’m happy to say that after that brief sojourn, he’s returning to the Adobe Digital Imaging team. Welcome back, Mark! [Via]
Oh, and to ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, who wrote at the time of Mark’s departure:
Microsoft’s competitor to Adobe Lightroom gets another champion… My bet is Hamburg will be instrumental in helping Microsoft bring to market its Photoshop Lightroom competitor.
Er, not so much.
