Raffle is Worth $1899

Santa Monica Again, but not at the Library


Continuing the policy of holding meetings in various locations throughout the southland, this meeting of the Los Angeles InDesign User Group will be held at the lushly-landscaped Yahoo! Center in Santa Monica. (If you are in the Orange County area, there is a new Orange County InDesign User Group. Check it out!)



This Month’s Topic: Books, Magazines, Android and iPad


Adobe Product Manager John Schuman will talk about the state of digital textbooks and how Adobe InDesign with DPS is on the cutting edge of new media, not only with things like Wired magazine but for eLearning and education as well. John will show the latest workflows, from InDesign CS5.5 to interactive content on Android and iPad tablets. John will also provide a brief overview of the newest products and developments from Adobe.

Yahoo! Center Community Room


The Yahoo! Center is a series of office and commercial buildings between Broadway on the north, Colorado on the south, 26th Ave. on the east, and Cloverfield on the west. It is across Cloverfield from the Santa Monica office of the DMV. Coming from the 10 Santa Monica Freeway, use the Cloverfield exit.


The underground parking garage can be entered via the visit entrance/exits on Broadway or Colorado. After 6:30 p.m. the only exit is on Colorado. Park on level P-1 (top) between the 2501 and 2525 Colorado elevator lobbies. Do not park in reserved spaces. There is an open stairway from the parking area to the ground level. If you can't take the stairs, there is an elevator. Once on the plaza, go towards the north, away from the parking openings. There are a number of maps of the complex set up on markers on the grounds itself. On each map, the Community Room is designated in 2500 Broadway. A turn-in is provided off of Broadway next to the Community Room for drop-offs.
