I am archiving older pieces I have written on other sites, making this the definitive home for all my work. This is one of several I am porting over from my GameDev.Net user journal. Enjoy!
A while back I decided to shift my "professional focus" away from software engineering. Despite this, I still have the inclinations and habits of a programmer. It's been tough, but I've finally come to terms with my shift and decided on the following:
- It's not worth my time to develop my own website. I'm going to hire someone to do it, especially since HTML and associated technologies revile me to no end.
- Hacking Linux does not appeal to me. I can tinker with it as far as simply requires using what others have written, but I have no interest in spending time converting that environment into a usable one, especially since I disagree with some of the fundamental decisions already taken.
- I'm far more interested in a media-centric computing environment. Let's face it, the overwhelming majority of interesting consumer applications today have to do with the creation, modification and publication of media. I'll post more on this at some other time.
