Today was a good day, all around. The Mozilla Developer Days hosted by Yet Another Society at Carnegie Mellon University are coming up this Friday. I'm glad YAS can help here; Mozilla is one of the biggest, most interesting, and most important collaborative projects around.
There are a number of CMU grad students attending, and I'll be thinking of how to get CMU Sphinx and Festival working. OpenVXI, the SpeechWorks open source VoiceXML interpreter already uses SpiderMonkey, and SALT ("Speech Application Language Tags") looks like a good thing to consider in the same framework.
Flames? Well, I didn't get the flames I deserved earlier this week, but I got a wee one CMU-internally, for posting Mozilla to CS. Only one though, so I did pretty well.
As for the leash -- we got a puppy.
