Default Questions for Adobe?

We've recently had an offer from Adobe to be connected with their product teams and even some people pretty senior for the purposes of an interview or similar.

I can think of a few questions I'd have, but ultimately you, the readers may have more of an idea. Got any pressing questions you'd like to ask anyone in particular in Adobe? I'm not guaranteeing anything but if you post them here, we'll see what we can do.

I'm thinking here questions like where they see the industry in 20 years, not "what features are in Flash 10" because I'm doubting you'll get that

If/when they plan on open the .fla format so that flash files can be version controlled in a team environment.

- Although I'm sure a lot of our questions can be answered by Sen.

How would they see flash adapting to new interface paradigms like voice-driven or multi-touch?

i know. there were talks to make the fla format a zip file ages ago and the descriptor format xml. this came to nought, i don't know why, but i suspect size and optomisation. but i think it has become a moot point now as you can acheive that with good design and the external compiler and some jsfl. its a matter of applying yourself.
schematic is a nice company, i saw some of the stuff in boston thats happening in the company and a friend of mine visited boston now again and saw some real nice work.

I heard something or other about it going to a mark up style format, but I'm not sure. It'd just be infinitely helpful, especially at Schematic where we have fairly large teams. And most of the time we are resourced 100%, without the time to 'apply' ourselves in any extra way at all.

It is true though a lot can be achieved without it.

-- Thank you, our Boston office MPG team is a great team headed by Joey Lott, but every person there is really talented.

ActionScript's roots go back to animators using "gotoAndPlay" to make their animations a little more interactive. As ActionScript evolves, it seems to be leaving it's "Designer" roots behind for a more advanced "Programmer" base. What is Adobe going to do to help make coding ActionScript more accessible to non-programmers?

sounds like he is bitching about AS 3.0 which was in develop before adobe took over. His case doesn't hold water.
