Where did the time go?

Alright, you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, why this site has gathered cobwebs and why on earth have I woken it up now..

After over a dozen years working with speech on the Mac, I now find myself looking forward, looking at options and opportunities. Having weathered all the ups and downs in a small company, broken the trail to bring real speech recognition to the Mac and created a very successful (and award winning!) product line, ridden it out through the acquisition by a rather large corporation. And then working to adapt a team into that much larger picture, well.. Nuance and I have parted ways.

What I find most interesting was my initial ‘morning after’ reaction, I woke up thinking about various UX items on upcoming features that need my attention, how to balance the value of sandboxing with the needs and value of interapp communication. And continuing to ponder what new directions Apple is going to go with Siri. Old habits die hard, don’t they?

And now it’s time to set aside some of those more specific habits and consider what’s next..

Where does the time go?

Looks like I’ve got a bit more time on my hands. So what to do.. I’d tried the blog thing a while back, maybe I could revive it. Oh… while I wasn’t looking it got hacked. Drag.

Ok, nasty unwanted stuff has been removed, maybe this is something I can spend some time on for a while again.

I think so.
