Sitting in front of the computer, launching the same applications day in, day out, I realized this morning that I have subconsciously become aware of a great number of people who develop the tools we depend on to earn our living. Maybe we take them for granted, as they’re just names on a screen… but I have more than once found myself mutterring “Seetha Narayanan, Seeeeeeetharaman NarayaNAN, Seetha…” and then thinking “Where did THAT come from?”

Today I came across* a post about someone’s visit to Adobe to meet with the Photoshop gang, and suddenly all those names became real people. It’s very interesting to see inside the belly of the beast, and be reminded that it’s just a bunch of normal, smart people creating this stuff. I must admit though, the Adobe offices seem a bit stuffy to me…
