Adobe BRIO : did you miss this too?
The second half of 2007 has seen a tsunami of news from Adobe and I guess we could be excused for missing a few things here and there. But I was very surprised when I heard about the BRIO beta. BRIO is a slightly scaled down and re-designed version of Adobe Connect. The beta offers users a free meeting room for up to three participants with a simple easy to remember URL. In that respect it is similar to Elluminate's vRoom. Elluminate is very much focussed on education, while Connect/BRIO has a wider target audience. Pity BRIO wasn't available when CS3 was released. It would have made that "Start A Meeting" link seem less like marketing and more like a useful part of the suite.
