Flashforward 2006

Posted by Kim Peterson at 1:02 PM

Today I chatted with Lynda Weinman, founder of the Flashforward conference for creators and developers working with the Adobe Flash platform.

Flashforward will be in Seattle for the first time this year, running from Feb. 27 to March 2 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. This will be the first conference since Adobe bought Macromedia in a deal originally valued at $3.4 billion. Speakers include the creators behind the popular JibJab and Homestar Runner animation series.

About 1,200 people are expected at the conference, and about 20 percent of them will be from the Pacific Northwest, Weinman said. The video division of Adobe, the conference's lead sponsor, is based in Seattle.

You probably won't see may Microsoft people there. See this story about how the Macromedia deal positions Adobe as a serious rival to Redmond.
