“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Adobe Document Center – Secure document distribution

Adobe Document Center is a new rich internet hosted application that allows users to maintain a collection of protected documents that can be easily distributed throgh the Internet to any list of recipients you like.

On first gaze it looks awesome. However, I can’t fully use it yet, b/c it requires that I have versions of either Acrobat or Office that I don’t have installed on my work machine any longer. It says MS Office 2003 or better, but it doesn’t allow for my beta version of Office 2007 and I don’t have 7 or 8 Acrobat. I just have the reader or 6.

The interface feels very simple as I was able to easily created my addressbook with groups and created protection policies for use when I distribute which includes rights management and date-based period management.

The interface feels fluid and clean as I would expect for a good Flash-based application. I can’t wait to deconstruct it some more in time for my presentation at the Web Application Summit in Monterey, CA, the week of January 21, 2007.
