If you want to know why I've been MIA from this blog, Dakim has something to do with it.
I've been with Dakim full-time since August 15. We're making touchscreen devices to help mentally stimulate people with Alzheimer's Disease. There's much about this I can't talk about on the blog, for obvious reasons. (We're a for-profit company. We'd like to not give any competetors who pop up a blueprint for what we're doing.) Still, there are some things I CAN talk about.
I've been setting up the office, the technology infrastructure we'll need to actually do most of the work we need to do. And I'm posting now because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel -- I'm almost done with the necessary but frustrating job of building a foundation, and I'm actually ready to start doing original work. By the end of this week, I should be done with all the big stuff -- there's still little stuff, but I can do that mixed in with doing the creative stuff. It's tremendously exciting -- I feel like a racehorse just before the starting bell.
