Please welcome…

As part of our family Egg:Basket Concentration Regimen 2010, I’m delighted to say that my wife Margot Liggett Nack has accepted a program management job at Adobe.  (Maybe the talk about Adobe being the second-best tech company to work for* finally wore her down.) She’ll be joining the digital video group in a few weeks to build… The Future (more details later).

As my friend Adolfo notes, “Now Adobe has 50% market penetration among Nacks (or Liggett-Nacks).” Two down, two to go.  In any case, welcome, hon!

*Curse your free food, Google!

    Thanks buddy! They made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, but what really sealed the deal was the carpool buddy I got paired up with :D

    Hello !

    My prediction is coming true – When Finn was born, I saw him as the Super-Uber Photoshopper at Adobe – With Margot joining in, I say we have 75% market penetration !

    Way to go Nacks !!

    All the best Margo.

    Congrats, Margot! Are we seeing the start of a Knoll > Nack dynasty transition? ;)

    btw – when’s Margot’s Adobe video blog going up? I’d love to see you two play blog tennis!

    [Heh–she’s far too smart to take on such a proverbial “land war in Asia”! :-) –J.]

    Neato, Margot!

    Do you get to ditch that notebook without the Apple on it?

    I’m glad you two are working for the same excellent company.

    Hooray, now something will get done in your work site.

    Need we say, someone will plant a GPS on your shoes to see where you go…

    My best

    Congrats to your wife. Adobe my be te 2nd best company to work for but your customer service is still the absolute worst. Maybe she is taking on that project in which case I am sure there would be an improvement.
