The blog’s back up. It’s been down most of the year, as rather a lot of you noticed.
Thank you, everyone who told me. Every time you told me my blog was down, you were also telling me that you missed it, or at least you needed it for something. You’re part of why I kept meaning to bring it back, and why I eventually did.
I work for Apple now.
I’m on the Foundation and Core Foundation team, which is part of Cocoa. Part of my job is reading the Radars you file about those two frameworks and making sure they go to the right people.
I live in San Francisco now.
I moved early in the year, not long after I had to change hosting providers after TextDrive breathed its last (that was why the blog went down in the first place) and shortly before I started at my job.
I moved for the job; I work in Infinite Loop.
(I also moved because I love San Francisco. I’ve been here a couple of times before, and fell in love with it when I first stepped out of Civic Center BART onto Market Street.)
I probably won’t write as much here anymore.
A big part of that is time constraints: Subtract the job, the commute, three square meals, and sleep, and I don’t have a lot of time in a day to pound out a blog post.
Then, of course, there’s the nature of the job: Being at Apple means I know some things that aren’t public. Not a lot, but enough. Better to be careful than accidentally say something here that I’m not supposed to.
The same goes for my being active on Stack Overflow.
You’re welcome to ask a question and send me the link, but somebody else will probably get to it before I will.
And, of course, MacTech. See above. (If you have a subscription, you might have noticed this already—my last article ran in August, I think.)
I won’t be at MacTech Conference this year, either. This is the first time in the conference’s history that I won’t be at it. But plenty of other fine folks will who are worth listening to and who are good company.
That’s all I have to say for now. For those of you who use Twitter, I’m still there.
Until next time.
