I owe everyone an explanation for the radio silence from my corner in the last few months. My deepest apologies to friends and readers out there who have been pinging me without avail. I wasn’t ignoring you. Well, yes, I was, in fact, ignoring you but, in my defense, it was because I had agreed not to discuss the all-consuming negotiations of my separation from inRESONANCE that had been underway.
I have been following Steven Blackwell’s post and comments to it with keen interest. It touches on a pattern of FileMaker polemics I have been mulling over myself. There is a certain tension in the FileMaker community that is often framed in terms of competing philosophies: geek vs. regular-joe, theory versus practice, technical versus non-technical, relational design versus flat design and so on.
