Do you invest time? For How long? Do you know about the Apple and Adobe..
Today, I’m 37 years old.. it’s a longer story but I never honestly thought I would be here today – let’s save that for another day.
Yesterday a friend shared a video that had me thinking and I really liked.. It was a video about Adobe Photoshop.. and it’s 25 year history.
I’ve shared it below.
I remember when the first versions came out, and the steps that went from the BBC Micro, to the Amstrad and the Mac and beyond..
I remember my fascination when you could edit single pixels in an image – I still remember showing my mum how you could initial something so small and so precisely.
So.. watch the video.. compare to where we are today in 2015.. Where will we be in the future?
I love how the feature most missed by the experts.. – and myself.. as as raving fan of Adobe products. – is the almost infinite undo. The single “undo” broke a lot of their flow and we all make mistakes.
I’m also touched by the reality of how these overnight successes do take time and we forget, we never really see the hours, weeks, months and years of shaping and developing.
I’m typing on a laptop thinner, brighter and more powerful than I ever imagined when I first wrote those first lines of code.. 10 if X=1 then goto 50..
www.FreshForms.com had a big update this week and we have over 30 features detailed out, I’ve got meetings with people this week that could transform my business and ability to impact in the world, and I’ve more importantly got different distinctions, wisdoms and tools than ever before.
www.FreedomInternationalNOW.com is building momentum quietly and I’m hoping to be able to share some great graphics, interviews and videos from The Future of Leadership event we supported on 3/3 with www.LeaderShapeNOW.com
If you think about the discoveries, thoughts and ideas of some of the “greatest” thinkers people like Albert Einstein, then you see that there is a progression, a spiral thought connected ideas that brings them to their “aha”.
Today is a new day.. what will do with it?
