The Hidden Value of Being Public

I've gotten so used to sharing my life and thoughts in public, on various blogs, Twitter, etc., I forget that that's not how everyone lives these days. For me, whatever situation I'm in, whatever I'm saying, I just assume it'll be available for all the world to see (should they choose to). Scary at first, perhaps, but the beauty is that thinking that way helps curb your bullshit (or at least keeps you to self-consistent bullshit). Imagine if the whole world did that!

Friend Seeking C++ Developers

A project I worked on a while back is now nearing its initial public beta, and they're looking for a good developer or two to bring them down the home stretch. Here's the writeup:
We are developing a cross-platform multimedia player to showcase our new rich media packaging technology. We are looking for C++ contract professionals with Windows, Mac and Linux skills to become part of our team.

Areas of interest include:
  • Media format knowledge
  • Portable player integration
  • sqLite3 embedding
  • GUI development
This project is well advanced, so new developers must be able to dive into existing code.

Ours is a small, highly skilled team. We expect all teams members to be self-starters. These contracts have long term potential for the right persons.
The team is distributed across the globe, so you can work the job from wherever you live. They are especially interested in someone with solid Mac skills to round out the team. Contact me if you're interested and I'll put you in touch.
