Macromedia Shwag Baton

In keeping with the Macromedia Shwag baton passing tradition, after I was handed it coupla days back by Matt Voerman, I am proud to list out mine.

May be this is akin to my nature, but I am not really comfortable showing them off (well, for anything I possess for that matter) and thus keeps most of them to be used only for the appropriate time/place. Being an Adobe Community Expert (erstwhile Macromedia Team Member), manager of iGeeks and a much pampered developer of Macromedia Technologies, I am lucky to get many if not HUGE Macromedia Collectibles! As for the ones intended for the Macromedia User Groups, I am tired of distributing them as it never finishes. I would like to slip a quick thanks to Edward Sullivan for the same. Mike Chamber is another person responsible for most of my possessions and a heap of thanks goes to him.

People(s) I’m passing the baton to:

I think I am the last one, if you are still out there, please pick it up from me and pass on this baton.

BTW, let me take this opportuity to ask if anybody is willing to sell off FutureSplash, Flash v1.0, Flash 2.0, Flash v3.0, Flash v4.0 and Flash v5.0. I want to buy them. I am more interested in the box and the software even if you have lost the licence (I won’t be using it).
