So many reasons to keep an eye on the Adobe blogs launched last week.

Obviously it’s great to see Adobe open up this line of communication. One of the main concerns Macromedia developers have expressed in regards to the pending acquisition is the (apparent) contrast between the two companies when it comes to fostering community interaction. This move would seem to indicate that Adobe is moving closer to the Macromedia end of the spectrum.

It will also be interesting to watch the Adobe bloggers gain their “sea legs” (blog legs?) as the inevitable ’slip ups’ are made, controversies flare and (most importantly) insight is shared. So far it would seem things bode well (check the comments in this post on John Nack’s blog for an indication of the “culture shift”).

In another post John (who is the product manager for Photoshop) also throws some props to the Flash Player guys.

It would seem that in a way an unofficial amalgamation has begun.

    Yikes. Where do I pay the fine for excessive use of It would seem?

    (Ulterior motive for this comment – I’m doing a functionality test after a Wordpress upgrade).
