Well, almost. I’m back from OSCON, Foo Camp, Burning Man and the Future of Music Conference. Traveling was fun, but I’m ready to wait for the not-so-nice weather and cuddle up with a computer and get some serious MusicBrainz work done.

The good news is that the data licensing revenue should start rolling in within a few weeks, which means that I get to keep working on MusicBrainz full time! Full time and paid — at first it won’t be much of a paycheck, but it should pay the bills. Maybe next year we can work towards a full paycheck — we’ll see.

Here is my todo list for the near future:

  1. Whip mirror servers into shape
  2. Sign more license deals
  3. Get the menu server release out the door
  4. Fix AR bugs, improve related artists, hammer out a few new server features.
  5. Release Picard 0.5.0, libtunepimp and libmusicbrainz — all of these desperately need new releases.

Of course there are lots more things on my todo list, but these are the top 5 items. Stay tuned for more info!
