ConnectNow

I’m in love with this new service by Adobe. It’s called ConnectNow and it’s on the acrobat.com site and let’s you share what’s currently on your screen with one or more people.  Add to that video and audio chat capabilities, and OMG, I can totally see this as being REALLY useful.

Just recently I was working on a logo for a client. After the initial design comps were done I would create a PDF of them and email them. Then he’d look at them and email or call me with his thoughts. This will streamline that process. I can just invite him to a meeting and skip the whole PDF creation and emailing process and walk through the designs. Then the tweaking… instead of making several variations and emailing, I can make the changes on the fly and he can tell me immediately if I’m heading in the right direction. This is SO cool.

I love technology!
