Happy Birthday Photoshop!

Adobe celebrates the 20th anniversary of Photoshop this year and for any of you who have ever launched the application I'm sure, like me, the name Thomas Knoll has crossed your mind. He's the first name you see on the list of developer credits, right below where it says 'scanning TWAIN menu items'...

Well he is! It's Knoll, in the flesh, reminiscing with fellow Photoshop founders John Knoll, Russell Brown, and Steve Guttman about the early days and subsequent impact of their killer app.

Adobe's video production crew have made these superstar programmers look about as cool as...well...about as cool a software programmer can look, with some o-so-soft lighting schemes, a bottle of Ernest and Julio Gallo and a natty Roaring 20s soundtrack all adding a certain panache to the celebrations.

Happy birthday Photoshop!

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
