Erik leaves Amazon.com (but doesn’t tell where to go/what to do) and Brad joins Six Apart to work on PHP dynamic rendering in MT 3.1, a welcome development I and others have been harping about for a while. There are some things you want to do at rendering time while near-static performance can be achieved using templating and caching systems such as Smarty (which Brad showed how to integrate with MT a while ago — this is what I’m using here though I’m far from making full use of it).
While we’re at it, I see Michael McDaniel leaves Amazon.com‘s personalization team too for MSN to work on… personalization. Seems it’s transfer season! Update: Alex Edelman too leaves Amazon.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
