Caffè Fibonacci Links and a Fan Club!

Here are the links to all the Caffè Fibonacci episodes ever produced together with my good friend and colleague Tim Cole.

But before I start I'd like to officially thank our Fan Club from the Santa Rosa Junior College; your support is truly appreciated! Thank you from both Tim and I.

And of course our Public Service Announcement about how the "Stupid PDF Syndrome" is an affliction that affects millions of PDF files each and every day. But be aware that you can help stop the transparencide!

Stay tuned for a brand new show of mine coming to Adobe TV in Spring 2009. In the meantime, be sure to check out new episodes from my fellow evangelist colleagues: Taming the Web with Greg Rewis, Flash Downunder with Paul Burnett, and Short and Suite with Jason Levine and Karl Soulé.


Normally I don't watch any TV Program. But not so with your Cafe thing! This was so great, thank you!

[Thanks Haeme, our pleasure, Rufus]

As the president of your official fan club featured above, I'm getting ready for another advanced InDesign class at Santa Rosa Junior College in Northern California this Fall 2009. I like your new series, Rufus, but miss the antics of Caffe Fibonacci. My personal favorite was when you smashed the layer cake, and my students all loved the humor! The Stupid PDF Syndrome episode always starts on my InDesign to Acrobat series of lectures. You and Tim are the best!

Hi Cyndi, thanks so much for the kind words. I know, Caffè Fibonacci was something else ;-) Take care.
