Onward and upward

Things have been rather more hectic than usual for the past week and a half with travel, projects and more projects and an unpleasant fall on ice. As a Southern California boy from the hot, smoggy San Gabriel Valley, I have a great appreciation of rain and snow, but I don't think anything will ever make me love ice.

The past week has been personally interesting to me for the pleasant surprises that some unexpectedly productive collaborations have brought. Today I was very surprised and pleased to learn that some suggestions I had made regarding a certain Open Source CAT tool have been implemented in a proof of concept. Too bad that it's too early for announcements, but I find the whole matter very exciting, not the least for the huge economic implications this may have for some translators. And I do find it very pleasing that some people take the time to do such things when they stand nothing to gain in a material sense. It puts some of us money grubbers to shame.

  1. Don't think of it as money-grubbing. Think of it as "keeping an eye on the bottom line." :-)
