The Ultimate Tourney Guide

On Sunday night, the NCAA (men’s college basketball in US) announced the 64 teams participating in their yearly tournament to determine the best basketball team in the country. Adobe along with ESPN have partnered to bring an interactive PDF document to your desktop to allow you to learn about the teams (via streaming video), watch the progress of the tournament bracket, and participate in daily polls.

This document is a great example of what’s possible with Acrobat (and Reader) 9 now that we have Adobe Flash run-time in the product.

Let me know your experience, and I hope your team wins!
