Adobe committed to being open, web 2.0 company?

The answer has to be "yes". During the last six months we have seen PDF going to ISO, the code donation to the Tamarin project, the launch of Flex 2.0, the pre-beta Apollo program which allows developers to build really cool applications, Photoshop becoming Software as a Service (PDF has been for years) and more. In the near future Apollo is going to shake up the entire developer world (if you don't believe me, take a look at this application and imagine people can build this as a standalone application complete with live feeds to deliver ads, extra info etc). The Adobe Cycling Tour Tracker is by far the coolest web application I have ever seen in my life. I would rather watch this than TV. The amount of live information coming to the desktop is unparalleled. TV stations - take note. This is what you have to compete with in the future.

When LiveCycle ES launches, developers and architects alike will be able to see how advanced Adobe is as an enterprise software vendor. The LiveCycle ES platform is based on the core tenets of the OASIS Reference Model for SOA.

If you want to find out more, you don't want to miss MAX 2007. This year MAX will be held in three locations. North America (the main MAX) will be September 30-October 3, 2007 in Chicago, IL; MAX Europe: October 2007, Barcelona, Spain and MAX Japan: November 2007, Japan.

Things we can do better? Tell us. We're listening.
