So, Aaron is now blogging for Adobe at the "Community Kitchen" blog site with the other Adobe Community Mgrs.  It has been over 6+ months now since making the transition from Sun to my new community.  But, it is still all about developers and "creatives" doing cool stuff on the web, mobile, and multi-screen.
