I am quite happy about this and all things you can do with it. The most important ones for me is the possibility of importing photos from Picassa, Flickr or Facebook. Of course, you can also make arrangementes to photos and all those things we already know. You can also publish an album. And the best thing is that is free!
On the other hand we find SlideRocket. This is about slideshows, something I like if you have seen my website. You can import a Powerpoint so as to prepare the slides. The transitions are great and you can publish the material in the web also.
So, this kind of applications are perhaps the future. Why do you need to have them in your computer if you can have them on the web?
What can I say about this Design event? Is it all said? This is my personal opinion about it:
- Alberto Corazón: He rode a lot, good ideas but a bit boring. - Albert Foch: I already knew the fanzine 137, great job! I can´t understand how three people with so good ideas can work together. - LaMosca: Well, I couldn´t see the infographics very well. It was interesting what they said about workflow. - AKQA: This people talked more in a concept sense. Perfect. - Zinkia: Interesting, I don´t think they will have same success with new trademarks as they havd with Pocoyo. - FarFar: His message: "Create time, ongoing advertising". It was great what they said about workflow: Online should be previous to Offline.
Saturday morning I couldn´t go, so I was there again after lunch: - Carlos Ulloa: Papervision at all! - Jung Von Matt: A bit boring, I think due to timetamble. I had listened before to some ideas as writting ads with ASCII in GoogleAds (aMinima). - Waskman: This was the best. The way they exposed ideas, the workflow, he was a Master! - Brand New School: I think all of us knew their job for Adobe. It looked like they were showing all the rejected works of the company. - Joshua Davis: A showman. Truely, all flashers wonder how can a man reach so far with that generative art.
In general it was good. I liked it althought many told me past year was better. I suppose it is difficult to make it with three disciplines: Design, Video and Web, although we saw a lot of multidisciplinar people.
So! There we are! Lastly we have a Designers/motionners/programmers festival here in Madrid! And we are very happy about it. We´ll meet there, change experiences, see other´s people work, interact, have a party. It sounds nice!
If you happen to be in Madrid next friday 12th or saturday 13th, you must be there. There´s no chance!
I created some months ago a group called "Actionscript Group" for those of you who use this application. This a summary about the group:
"This is a group for Actionscript Developers professionals to expand our network of people and ideas.
The mission of the Actionscript Group is to help us to be more effective in our daily work and open doors to opportunities using the professional relationships we already have."
So, as I have posted a lot about Actionscript job market I decided to create this group. The main aim is to make connections between people related to Actionscript. The only requirements to join us are:
