Macromedia MAX Bloggers?

with 4 comments

The annual Professional Developers Conference was probably the most blogged event of 2003. The big thing this year was the information about Longhorn and Avalon. Over 7000 geeks and nerds from all over the world travelled down to the City of Angels and saw over 120 sessions during 4 days. Impressive. PDCBloggers is a website that connects the attendees and bloggers of PDC, and provides aggregated RSS feeds. If you weren’t able to attend the conference, you now had a single place to go to, for up-to-date information about the various keynotes and sessions, some of them were updated during the sessions, thnx to Wi-Fi.

The alternative for MX developers is ofcourse the Macromedia MAX 2003 event, 21st of November in Salt Lake City. With 89 sessions and various keynotes during 3 days, there is going to be loads of new and fresh information about the MX technologies. The two new technologies will be Macromedia Central and Macromedia Royale and rumours have been floating around that there will be new bits of information about it on MAX. Unfortunately…i won’t be there. Sad…but true.

I was thinking about creating a MAX alternative for PDCBloggers, something called MAXBloggers. However…i don’t run my own webserver, and i don’t think TypePad has the features to do this. Now i am using the power of the internet and hope someone can use this idea and create something similar to PDCBlogger. Maybe the Goog? MXNA? CentralMX even? I can provide assistance ofcourse. Don’t hesitate to forward this posting and spread the word. 😉

Oh..for everyone who does attend Macromedia MAX 2003, hope you have a great time. And please _do_ blog about it! 🙂

  1. Cool idea; I’ll be bloggin from MAX…

    Whatever happened to that idea, “Together” I think it was called. A concept idea for a Macromedia Central application that allowed you to blog on the go, chat / share with the community. I know it’s probably too late now for MAX….

  2. We are going to be creating a special MAX 2003 category in MXNA and recruiting MAX bloggers shortly. Watch the Macromedia weblogs for details.
