Work week so far and my new favorite Mac App!

Day two is over. The team is great, i really like everybody. Best of all! The soda machine is a quarter!! :-D I’m jumping in feet first, working with Wayne on a project that’s due out by Friday, my way to learn. It’s a Windoze world, not everything is perfect.

As far as I can tell Adobe engage started the ball rolling, Tom, Ted and I kept it going and gave it a push at 360Flex, and now SXSW has come up behind it and given it a two handed shove. Very cool!
