InDesign Event in SF in January

Bay Area InDesign User Group:
I'd like to announce the next meeting of the Bay Area InDesign User Group for Thursday (YES, THURSDAY) January 11th, 2007 at 6:30pm, to be held at Adobe San Francisco. Here's a plan: Go to Macworld all day and then join us for fun and frivolity in the evening -- plus you'll learn something, too.

We will be having two special presenters this meeting: Sandee Cohen, InDesign guru; and Bob Connolly, Interactive PDF expert.

Follow-up to last session:
Interactive PDFs, What can really be done: Welcome Bob Connolly to show us what can really be done with Interactive PDFs. Last meeting I showed you the basics and Bob will demonstrate what an expert can do. Come and be wowed by his creative genius. You will be amazed at what bookmarks, hyperlinks, sounds, and movies in interactive PDFs can really do.

Sandee Cohen, Unleashed:
Join us for our annual Sandee show. Who knows what new tips and tricks are up her sleeve this time. Or what hilarity she will bring. Sandee is an extraordinary presenter, trainer, author and designer and she's done these things all over the world. Don't miss this IDUG session!

As always, the evening will conclude with the group's customary raffle of valuable software, books, and prizes.

Be sure to sign up so we have an accurate count for pizza and refreshments.

Public Transit:
SF Muni bus #10 passes in front of the Adobe San Francisco office en route to the Caltrain depot, the Transbay terminal, and Market St. SF Muni bus #19 crosses Townsend at 8th St. traveling south, and at 7th St. traveling north to Market St. and BART. The Caltrain depot at 4th and Townsend is several long blocks from Adobe San Francisco. SF Muni bus routes 9, 12, 22, 27, 33, 47, and 53 also pass within walking distance. San Francisco Bay Area Transit Information has schedules and maps for San Francisco Muni, Caltrain, and other transit agencies.

There should be plenty of on-street parking in the area unless there is a baseball game. I don’t know about any parking garages in the area. It's usually not too hard to find parking on Townsend after 4pm. It's best to park between 4th St. and the 6th St. underpass, on the building-side of Townsend. Someone told me they had heard there have been break-ins in cars parked on the Caltrain fence side of Townsend. After almost a year of meetings, I have never heard of any problems myself.
