I could not agree with you more about the intel community no being
more aware of what is already available commercially and in
academia. Working in a physically closed environment tends to close
the mind as well, (one of the reasons I had to leave).
As for the meaning of "successful" , I must qualify my perspective as
that of a software developer. Regarding the software products I
mentioned: I was responsible for many of the key ideas, the
architecture, look and feel, and technical leadership. So when the
products exceeded customer expectations, were delivered on time, and
were still growing in use when I left: that is successful software.
My software-centric view of the world is another reason I want to see
the bigger picture.
