I’m reminded of the story of three blind men describing an elephant. None of them can see the truth, so each has to describe this huge beast from their own, very limited, perspective.
What brought this to mind was a recent blog post from Dustyn Gobler commenting on what the cancellation of the XServe means to the ProApps. (Read it here.)
As I told Dustyn in my reply to his post:
I think there is a very large middle-ground that you are over-looking which exists between Avatar (and The Real World) and soccer moms. In this area, Final Cut Studio provides a high-quality and significant solution.
Still, until we see what Apple has planned for the future, all this is just guess-work. It was fun to read your thoughts even though I do not wholly agree with them.
Dustyn kindly responded saying that the lens through which he viewed the Apple announcements was that of someone involved in reality TV and info-tainment.
Then, he shared with me an email he received from Steve Jobs, which, if true, adds yet more fuel to the fires of all this discussion.
Take a look at this second post from Dustyn and let me know what you think.
As Dan Cook, or Earl Weaver, or Bill Carpenter, once said: It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.
Cool – I can wait.
