On the heels of Adobe's announcement of Photoshop Lightroom 1.0, the folks over at PhotoshopNews.com have just launched LightroomNews.

One of the things I noticed while looking around was a feature article called "A Visit to Adobe" - which some may recall from July post from PSN. It's a great piece that takes you into the heart of where Photoshop is born - but only to the door of the "holy of holies."

I always enjoy getting a glimpse into the environments where the movers and shakers of the creative fields work. One of my favorite special features on a DVD is where Pixar takes you through their facility and shows you all of the personality, the creature comforts, and madness that allows their staff to be free to create. And it seems as though Adobe is on a similar track.

On a somewhat related note, I was listening to NPR last week and they had a short piece on the changing trends in office decor. Where there used to be a lot of grays, sterility, cold lighting and utilitarian furniture, there is now warmth, comfortable fabrics, soft couches, and open spaces instead of the formerly requisite cubicles.

I think it's a great idea !

(Wow, that's not where this post was initially headed...)
