    Hi, just wondering, will the source code for some of the demos shown during flash camp be published?

    Thank you, Adobe, for a fun and informative time at this year’s SF FlashCamp event. I’m pleased that you are both continuing to make the Flash platform open source as well as providing such kick-ass products to make the most efficient use of them. And you were definitely tops in hospitality as well.

    As a side issue (but definitely an issue), I have to wonder if software, like ships or cars, has a gender. I ask because of the t-shirt you distributed that evening, depicting a (male) Flex presenting a (female) Photoshop with flowers and a gift of (apparently neuter) Flash Catalyst (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikechambers/3576861546/). While not normally one to look a gift horse in the mouth, even a promotional one, being gay I would have a hard time wearing this one and feeling good about it. I acknowledge that budget-wise it probably wouldn’t have made sense to come out with male-female, male-male and female-female versions–after all, you did provide a range of sizes as opposed to the default XL that so many vendors give out–yet I wonder if a different metaphor would have been better for the shirt such that anyone in the heavily gay Bay Area would feel comfortable wearing it. After all, I presume the idea of producing these shirts is giving folks something they would be likely to wear.

    Thanks for listening, and keep up with all those great products and ideas.

    @Chas

    Thanks for the feedback. I am sorry if you were offended, and will consider your input for future t-shirts.

    btw, the characters don’t represent the products, but rather a designer and developer.
