Coming Up for Air

They say that when a Microsoft blogger goes quiet, it means there's something big coming up. Well, that's not just for Microsoft. I'm back to blogging after two major, major releases at work: Vocollect Voice for Handhelds and the Vocollect Talkman T5 wearable computer.

The T5 was a pretty exciting project--a high-performance, extremely ruggedized, Bluetooth- and 802.11b-enabled voice-controlled wearable about the size of a large mouse. Unfortunately, I can't talk about the internals of which I'm most proud, but ite's a damned slick piece of hardware, and probably the most fun product of my career.

So now that I have a little breathing room, I'm going to be able to think about non-work-related geekery a little more. I've become fairly smitten with TurboGears over the last few months, and it's been frustrating not to have enough time to properly follow what's developing there. With any luck, I'll be blogging more about that in the near, near future.

Edit 17 Jan 2006: finally got "real" links for VVH and T5...
