NW: >> Obscure? Stole? Mystery? I thought I was fairly candid about why I left and why I joined Mark Logic.
So here’s what happened: I read just the first portion of the entry in my feed reader and assumed that was it. I hadn’t noticed “Sun set” at that point because “Mark Logic” was written afterwards so therefore was at the top of the stack in my inbox.
So it looks like what I had thought was just a one line “I’m now with Mark Logic” post contained a bunch more information than I had realized. Didn’t mean to come across in such a way as to suggest I thought there was some sort of conspiracy, though it seems that’s how it came across. My bad!
Also, as it relates to the usage of obscure ‘XQuery Content’ company,
That’s probably the wrong word. I guess what I’m suggesting is the XQuery market at the moment is still pretty small, so by obscure company I really should have said something more inline with “small niche market industry.”
And lastly, if the back channel rumor mills are correct, my guess is that this isn’t the last big-name XML luminary we’ll see moving over to Mark Logic. Time will tell… ;-) I’ll write a new entry related to this topic if/when it seems appropriate to do so.
… I’m wondering how in the hell some obscure “XQuery Content” company stole Norm Walsh away from Sun. Y’all know who Norm Walsh is, right?
Anyone care to provide some insight? Is Mark Logic really *that* good?
Makers of an exceptional XQuery engine and XML content platform. And my new employers.
Anybody? ‘Cmon… There’s got to be more to this story than just… [Mystery]?
