Fellow tip-ophiles, my apologies for not sending out a DesignGeek in November. I plead greed. There were so many new projects I wanted to do all at once that DesignGeek took a back seat.
I'm thrilled to say that one of these is a new web portal and podcast that David Blatner and I are doing. It's called InDesign Secrets:
For now, the web site is mainly serving as a home for the podcast. As of this writing we've got the premiere episode published — twenty minutes of David and I trading InDesign tips and techniques and having lots of fun playing radio dj's. Take a listen!
You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes on the Mac or Windows — just search for "InDesign Secrets" or either of our names in the Music Store — or you can listen to an .mp3 of the episode right in your browser via the web site:
In the coming weeks we'll be filling up the site with all sorts of resources for InDesign users, and recording new podcast episodes every week or so. If you have any suggestions for show topics, or InDesign questions you'd like answered on the show, you can e-mail us at info [at] indesignsecrets [dot] com.
Stay tuned <cough> for further developments .. ;-)
P.S. Speaking of InDesign, you may enjoy seeing the Flash video files (about 20 minutes worth) of me, David, Sandee Cohen and Deke McClelland talking about switching to InDesign. For some reason they deleted the musical segments showing our silhouettes hip-hop dancing with InDesign boxes — guess it must have been a trademark thing:

Note: If all you see are our faces and a red triangle (no list of segment titles at the left and nothing plays), that's because Adobe messed up the plug-in detection in the HTML code. Installing the latest Flash player, a one-minute ordeal, takes care of the problem:
