Is there any site or feed that is a good resource for daily After Effects and industry news, discussions and info?

I check these (creative cow) forums and news every day, but it seems to be focused more on support, and I would love to find one for industry news and info (After Effects and Video Production).

Here's how I feel about that -- Meh. Really. It would be pretty useless.

Any daily AE news is bound to originate with The Adobe Marketing Weasels, and they are rarely in touch with the reality of how their applications work for most people. They put things in the best possible light they can. Very few individuals can afford all the hardware that REALLY makes their applications work. Right now The Weasels are all over the concept of multiple collaborative user inputs into the same AE project; never mind that it's pretty much a fail. But to read their stuff, you'd think The Lord And Savior Jesus Christ Himself had descended from Heaven Above to bestow this boon to mankind. Furthermore, most individuals can ill afford to keep the IT people on staff needed to resolve the many bugs and just plain ol' bad code still in AE.

So if you're all about getting the Pollyanna perspective on AE, I encourage you to continue your quest. I'll stick with a more realistic view.
