Quote o’ the day

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” — W.B. Yeats (via Gov. Jerry Brown)

So c’mon, baby, let’s light some fires.

    I couldn’t agree enough. Makes we want to watch Stand and Deliver.

    If you’ve yet to see it, it’s worth a watch!

    Agreed. Time to get serious. Well, nearly time with and for Adobe anyways. So, a local suggestion: have the Adobe Evangelists stop producing “My favorite five” featurettes, and concentrate on tutorials which accomplish one grand thing ….

      Isn’t Adobe TV filled with videos of the evangelists doing just that?

        Johnathan, Not really. What I had in mind might be accomplished with 30 minutes or so of video, for a complete project – soup to nuts. There are a few examples like this on Adobe TV, but only a small proportion of the total coverage. I feel that Adobe will be “on their own” more now with CC – there will be fewer independent and third-party sources of tutorials (and other add-ons). Because the applications themselves will no longer have a two year lifetime … so, what could be assembled as a project description today might be outdated, and itself require an update, 6 months downstream.
