Just back from the first stop on the Adobe AIR Bus Tour; here are some quick impressions:
The bus-tour concept is outstanding. They've taken a luxury motor coach, shrink-wrapped it in bright Adobe red, and filled it with everything a hard-working nerd needs--sketchy bandwidth, Guitar Hero, heavily-caffeinated beverages, and sixteen tons of O'Reilly books--to code on the fly. (Remember that scene in Buckaroo Banzai when the Hong Kong Cavaliers pull up? It's sort of like that.)
Oh, and yes, the bus has an API. Feeds include goodies like geolocation, events, videos, weblogs, and Twitter, and they're adding to it constantly. Mike, Kevin, and Daniel are all nice, approachable guys with clear technical expertise, and many of the examples they show are hosted on their own sites. This is a pretty good sign that the outfit you're dealing with "gets" technology evangelism: they're not afraid to allow their people to build their own personal brands.
