@danstowell Is he still at Apple? I recall he open-sourced SuperCollider when they hired him to develop AudioUnits
@sciss @acb @danstowell He gave a SC Symposium keynote a few years ago which discussed the language he was working on at the time and included code examples. Technically, of course, it belonged to Apple. IF this is something new then, that's good. Partially because the one he showed was not something I'd ever want to use - and was possibly designed to not be appealing to Apple.
If he was hired for filesystems or something, he could claim it was not related to his job and was his sole property, but as he was working on core audio...
The thing he showed at the symposium was /really/ esoteric and it's possible Apple said they don't want it.
@sciss @acb @danstowell This is maybe boring, but there's no such thing as 'free time' for what's called an 'exempt employee' under labour laws. They don't claim hours, they just get a salary. Which means they don't get overtime and aren't 'off the clock' if they're working on related ideas at home.
Disney keeps all it's art employees sketchbooks and asserts rights over their doodles.
