On Thursday, July 12, 2007, a hefty box arrived at my doorstop. Inside? My author’s copies of Foundation Flash CS3 for Designers, written by Tom Green and me. What a way to perk up the afternoon!
Right away, I flipped to the XML chapter to show Meridian the picture of herself (she’s in one of the XML sample files, which includes a number of JPGs). For a brief moment, she seemed confused — but then she laughed. Good stuff! It was a terrific response to a project that took so much of my time. This kid gives me all the perspective I need in life.
