TalisI hadn't heard much about Talis before SemTech. I suppose I spend too much time on technology and not enough time on how and where it's applied. That's what people like Andrew and Danny are good for, which is why I stay in touch with their blogs.
So I only really started paying attention to Talis when David did his interview on their podcast. This podcast has a fascinating series of interviews with people whose opinions I'm interested in hearing. The only problem I have with it is the intro music. It reminds me of the 70's relaxation music they play while warming up the star projector in the Brisbane Planetarium, so I end up imagining that I'm listening to the interviews in a cavernous auditorium with the lights turned off. But don't let that put you off - the content is good.
So now I had an awareness of Talis, but never had any interaction with them. Then on Tuesday morning I decided to catch up on my RSS feeds, and read that Danny had started employment with them. I didn't even know he was looking for that kind of work. Congrats Danny.
About an hour after reading Danny's news, David introduces me to Ian and Sam from Talis. This is the same Ian mentioned in Danny's blog post about his new job. I know we're all in the same industry, but reading about someone and meeting them an hour later is just scary synchronicity.
Next I hear that Talis may be interested in Mulgara features. These guys are everywhere. But that reminds me: I'd better do some coding.
