Itís a good day for technology. Macromedia has announced Fireworks MX and Dreamweaver MX, both of which add just tons of new features, including working better with their competitors programs. Also, Apple has release a neat looking little computer called the eMac, which is an allĖinĖone system built for the education market. Theyíve included the most important feature in my mind: a higher resolution screen. Theyíve also released a new version of their Titanium Powerbook with a higher res screen and the ability to output to a secondary digital flat panel. Screen space is essential.
I spent Saturday and Sunday in Chicago, going to the AnonFed event and hanging out with Ivo. The event was exactly what I thought it should beónot too slick, just to the point, well organized and inspirational. Iím excited that theyíre planning on doing it every month. Essentially itís a bunch of people listening to someone talk about design and code in a baróa nice change from your normal bar scene.
When MerEdith and I got to Chicago on Saturday, Ivo was helping Kurt and Alyssa move into their new place. Lisa, a friend of theirs, started talking to us and it turns out that she knows someone who lives in the same house that weíre moving into in June. Maybe itís not that crazy, but it seems crazy. If anything it seems like some sort of good sign.
