Back from holidays
Yes, a nice three-week holiday with the family couldn't stop me from thinking, and now that I'm back, I'll let you all know what I have thought;
I've thought a lot about a Java-proxy in cooperation with a nice Topic maps engine like TM4J and some fancy metadata sniffing could be the ultimate personal mapper/blogger/recorder/whatever. The ideas have been turned into sketches, and a little more polishing of a prototype, and we're ready to see if the idea is good. I'm excited about it.
I've thought a lot about what the next iteration of xSiteable should be, and the refactoring I've done the last two days looks quite promising. I'm cleaning up and expanding and doing things the Right Way (TM), and although it should break backwards compatibility (not a lot, but enough to agitate the masses into violent mobs with pitchforks and the works in search of revenge) it is well worth it. I'll test and test, and probably release late this week or early next week. I'm excited about it.
I've thought a lot about my life as a software engineer. I don't feel geeky enough to specialise in a language like Java or C#, nor clever enough to only do Topic maps and related things metadata. I'm a bit puzzled about what the future will be, but ... I'm excited about it.
I've thought a lot about my new life when moving to Canberra Australia in two months; will I get good work, will our lives be better, will it work? There are a million things to do and work out before we go, but I've decided to throw away more than bring, so I'm excited about it.
So, in all this excitement, when will I have time to fear all of it? I'll try to think like Dave. Maybe he's on to something.Permalink (Wed, 29 Jul 2003 13:00:00 GMT)| Comments (2) | General
