  Adobe Didn't Come
(so we gave it all away)

Adobe was scheduled to come to the April 1999 General Meeting and talk about InDesign, the program they are touting as a "Quark killer." (Nuclear physicists are somewhat concerned about this characterization.) At the last minute, Adobe sent every available body to a sales meeting in Texas, which isn't very close to Maryland, DC or Virginia, so the Pi put on its own Adobe presentation using the talents of Pi members Pat Fauquet and Mary Keene.

Oh, yes: we also gave away all the software Adobe shipped us for door prizes.

Surprisingly alert for early on a Saturday morning, the crowd thinks up imponderable questions for the Q & A session. (Photo by Tom Witte)

Meanwhile, out in the lobby, the hordes descend on the Pi table to look at the piles of special offers, and purchase copies of Pi Fillings from Office Manager Beth Medlin (on right). (Photo by Tom Witte)
