The software side of Intel 

The article The software side of Intel discusses Intel's foray into software development. Most folks know I worked for Intel Supercomputers before Microsoft. We were a strange breed: software developers in a hardware company. And we weren't really all that valued. Folks who moved on had a hard time finding good software jobs at Intel. I left the company. Coming to work for Microsoft was wonderful. It is a software company with a wonderful process for creating software and being super customer focused. Perhaps Intel can pull it off. I doubt it. Also, Intel needs to come out and say they'll support any software they ship for ten years. Why? Because it's easy to decide "Oh, this is hard. Alright, we tried. Time to close shop and move back to hardware." I can't count the number of consumer devices Intel has dropped and the supporting software is bit-rotting. I'd love it if Intel could pull-off software development, if only to know lots of folks I used to work with could finally kick some butt.

Lots going on! 

Oh, there's so much going on right now.  Work is busy.  Home is busy.  The wedding was wonderful and the honeymoon at Biras was super-wonderful.  Now we're the in the process of getting the Graham house ready to sell and look for a new home, hopefully in the Redmond / Woodinville area.  It will just boggle my mind to be close to work and to Seattle.  We're going to miss Graham, no doubt, but it's going to be replaced with lots of fun. 


Stuff going on with EricRi. Yeah. Grey-beard geeking it in the Northwest.
