Adobe Summit 2013 – Day 2 and Beyond

Day Two of Adobe Summit is in the books now and it was a day full of excitement and emotion.

In our morning keynote, we were excited by Felix Baumgartner’s first-person account of how he successfully managed risks and stood on the edge of Earth’s atmosphere. We were moved by Sal Khan’s story of how the Khan Academy came to be; so much so that Khan received a standing ovation, something extraordinarily rare at Adobe events.

Another round of breakout sessions kept people’s brains full, and then it was time for the capstone of Summit — Sneaks. Our guest host, the wonderful Carrie Brownstein, shared her love/hate relationship with the Internet and then we all enjoyed ten fantastic sneak peeks of possible new product features (but sadly I can’t share anything more about them here).

Social conversation has been a part of Summit for a few years now, but this year the conversation went to a whole new level. The #AdobeSummit hashtag trended across the United States several times during Summit and a number of Sneaks hashtags trended nationally as well.

We also produced two new videos sharing how Summit keynotes get made and getting feedback on the popular Predictive Analytics session today:
