…the Mobile and Devices Business Unit will be folded under Adobe’s Experience and Technology group.
For context, he was one of the main dudes in charge of Macromedia’s server products, aka Flex a few years back, right when Flex was being born. He even made some public appearances at conferences and blog comments to talk it up. I had about 3 short personal meetings, and more email conversations with him over the early years of Flex.
The reason I respect David is the same reason I respect Lucian Beebe. He had a confident, steady story about Flex’ business positioning as well as how it was being marketed. Whether I was speaking from the heart, or just baiting him, both online and in person, I felt he respected me as a customer regardless of yearly revenue. He didn’t bs, either. Straight shooter.
Curious where he’s going.
