I had an excellent (and long) conversation this morning with a former lead programmer for PTC who has been reading my blog and shares many of my interests. Without getting into details, our discussion turned into a brainstorm about a tool for content creation; only the more I think about it, the more I realize it’s really more than just a tool. It initially felt like a mash-up of a number of different apps, but in reality, after turning things inside out, at the core is what may be an entirely new way to think about digital content and the applications used to develop it.
I have a feeling something like this would gain some traction. And it would almost certainly have to be an open source project, so if it does by some miracle move forward, I’ll be posting about it.
