Check it out: Seth Godin in Ann Arbor Michigan – May 22nd. This is what I like about Ann Arbor. It’s a relatively small city, but it is disproportionately active for its size. There are a lot of interesting technology, business and arts things that go on here.
If you’re interested in marketing and not familiar with Seth’s work, you should really check out his blog.
Ajaxian Â» Adobe announces that it will be opening Flex under Mozilla License. This is a big move on Adobe’s part, and it will be interesting to see how this shakes out against OpenLaszlo which previously could cite its open source nature as a benefit over Flex. Adobe still catches a lot of flak because the Flash player is closed source. Given their recent open source moves, I would be surprised if they aren’t seriously considering it. Adobe makes no money off of the basic Flex SDK, and the same goes for the Flash Player. If their business goal is to make their money off of the nicer development tools and environments, then open sourcing those things that they’ve been giving away may indeed make good sense.
