Thanks for responding to my comments. I fear we may sound like a couple of old-timers reminiscing about bygone days! However much as we and our peers might have enjoyed those exclusive, invite-only events I can't help thinking that the SuperMeet appears to have been rather effective at getting word out beyond the walls of Bally's Event Center. None of this seems to have hurt sales and the February briefing would seem to suggest that higher-profile clients are still being courted. In the end that may be more important than being seen to spend money elsewhere… I want to see the ecosystem continue to grow too. I think that we all understand how important it is. I was only meaning to challenge your use of the phrase “hang off” in the original post, which I don't think acknowledges the proactive role the third-parties play. My experience is that developers are only too aware of the limitations as well as the opportunities involved in creating solutions for FCP. Moving forward I also hope that there is equal chance for all.
Thought-provoking and insightful, as always. I may be missing something more nuanced in your argument, but I find your assessment of the “Sneak Peek” puzzling. That is to say, the evidence suggests there are different channels and venues, that there are briefings ( on one hand and SuperMeets ( on the other. In that world I see opportunities for different levels of engagement and what you've interpreted to be an “act of desperation” might just have been a chance to put on a good show. Regarding the third-parties, I would suggest that the manufacturers of both hardware and software have *created* an extensive ecosystem around FCP.
