IBM Research -1, Google +1

I linked in with a former colleague from IBM Research yesterday. I mentioned in my invite that I still use Lugaru Software’s Epsilon editor. He recommended it to me over 25 years ago, and it’s been my everyday editor ever since.

Here is his reply:

Dave,

Long time… It looks like you got caught up in the same “get rid of the old guys” RA that I did; what a pisser. I was very lucky and fortunate to land the job at Google, which more and more is becoming a landing spot for refugees from Research.

After many years, I finally gave up on Epsilon and switched [back?] to Emacs. There’s a very good Windoze ‘port at gnu.org and, of course, it’s free although I should probably toss some money in their tip box in lieu of payments to Lugaru.

Take care, and good luck!

I had the good fortune to be associated with three great institutions: Caltech, NYU’s Courant Institute, and IBM Research.

Caltech and Courant still flourish, but IBM Research will never again approach what it once was.
