[Bill Davis] "It was just a story link. Not a poke in the eye. But these are apparently sensitive times."

I've often thought that any sentence that contains the word "just", as in "just a story link," needs to be looked at closely. "Just" is often a con man's best weapon, employed to hide an important point behind a cover of irrelevance. It's "just" $99 dollars, it's "just" a few blocks away, we're "just" friends. Whenever I see such a sentence I immediately listen to it again without the "just" - as in "it was a story link." Yes it was, and it was the same sort of link you have been posting for the past 5 years. And it contains the same overstatement and hyperbole that we have all grown so used to. So if you're looking for the cause of this stasis you mention, you might want to look in a mirror.

[Bill Davis] "8 years on nearly."

And X still hasn't taken the world by storm. It's an important part of the post eco system, used by a significant number of editors, and fully capable in many workflows. But I'd argue that it is, after 8 years of exposure, still less significant in the overall post world than FCP 7 was when it was EOL'd.

Which shouldn't matter to anyone who is happily using it, but the distance between the proselytizing and the facts is a bit of an irritation, something less than a poke in the eye and more like a loose eyelash.
