Adobe in a recent press release announced that it “has taken steps to reduce its headcount by approximately 600 full-time positions globally”. This was buried in the middle of a lot of other dollar-numbers, and what narks me the most is the complexity of business writing which hides the message within itself. Peter of RIAJobs gives more inside information, including that Adobe Evangelist Mike Downey would be leaving too. I’m sorry and I wish everyone affected the very best.
David Tucker, the RIA expert of InsideRIA.com, shares the wonderful news that he is now a father of twins. Hearty congratulations, David!
After seeing last week’s roundup post mention about his course, Duane Nickull has dropped by to let us know that another course is also avalable at http://www.web2open.org/courses.html. “They total 8 hours of tutorials, teachers guides, starter and completed projects plus a custom build of BlazeDS using Apache Axis 1.4 SOAP stack (works with Flex Builder 3’s WSDL Inspection Wizard),” he wrote. Thank you once again, Duane.
The world cheers about Wikipedia, but it being an open encyclopedia for everything in the universe is also playing against itself. UK ISPs are filtering access to Wikipedia after accusations of hosting what some consider child pornography.
