ADobe: Don’t cross the streams!

Dr. Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.

Dr. Scott Evangelist Barnes: What?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Don't cross each brands technologies.

Dr. Scott Evangelist Barnes: Why?

Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.

Dr. Scott Evangelist Barnes: I'm a little fuzzy on the whole "good/bad" thing here! What do you mean "bad"?

Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

Dr. Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal!

Dr. Scott Evangelist Barnes: That's bad. Okay. All right, important safety tip, thanks Egon.

On March 22, 6pm AEST -  I will be daring to do something that not many have done before. I will challenge the very fabric of Adobe's X-Platform belief and may very well perish in a instantaneous ball of heated light.

I will combine Microsoft Windows Vista SideBar, Flex 2.0.1 and Carbon Dioxide in a 3 minute WebJam-off.

Adobe will be there in full force, they may get scared and have put Ted Patrick as my counterpart to win over the crowd (he is bringing a rubber wet suite, so kids, it could get messy). That's ok, the room will be a tough one to win over as it will be deep Adobe country and so I expect to lose but behold my aftermath!

They say it can't be done, I say damn you man! It can!

This will be the day of reckoning, oh yes, be there or miss out on what could be a cross-brand religious moment.

(that or watch me completely screwup a perfectly good presentation and have a room full of Adobe Developers & Designers heckle me for it - ahhh kids can be so cruel).

If you're not at WebDU, you're just not cool.

    Are we going to have someone videotaping the Scott-Ted dinner? If not, can we please make that happen? I would pay to watch that 🙂

    You know now you have committed like this, there is no turning back. We’ll all want to see the magic occur. And madly photo,video it as it does. So if it fails.. man you go down in flames.. big time. 🙂

    I know… I’ve got no skill for 3 minute demos, 45mins yes but 3.. hell no 🙂

    Know where you are coming from, I can do 20-30-50 minutes not problem, it just flows.. But ask me to cut it down to 10-5-3 minutes, I just go blank..
