mLearning Revolution

First, I would like to congratulate my former Adobe colleagues, who worked on the new Creative Suite 6 apps. After watching the launch presentation yesterday and keeping an eye on what people are saying about it on Twitter, I think it’s safe to say that this has been one of the most impressive and successful launches in the history of Adobe. All truly great examples of a Post-PC era.
