Interview: Aaron Fulkerson of MindTouch Software

Interviews

I had the unique opportunity to interview Aaron Fulkerson of MindTouch, and discuss their new MindTouch Deki known as "Kilen Woods". What he had to say was quite interesting.

Raiden's Realm: Tell us a little about MindTouch.

Aaron Fulkerson: Sure. We develop MindTouch Deki. We started the company in 2005. I'm one of the founders. And then there's my buddy Steve who's the CTO. We met at Microsoft where we did research into distributed systems, and then we decided to start MindTouch. In 2005 we started, and in 2006 we did our first product release at OSCON, and I guess that first release was more of an enterprise wiki, which is pretty much the extent of what it did. So it was competitive with other enterprise wikis out there. But what we had in development from the very beginning of MindTouch was this web services framework and web orchestration engine that underlined this enterprise wiki interface.

Quod Libet 3.2.1 Review – An Almost Perfect Music Player

It's a mystery why Quod Libet is not a more popular media player. It's been around for years and the developers have constantly worked on it. The last major update was done back in May 2014, and the software is stable and full of goodies. Quodlibet is a Latin phrase that means "what pleases" and it's used in music to describe a piece that's a combination of multiple melodies. The name seems to relate very well to the media player and it's actually quite catchy. Read more
