i don't think it's OT.
when i've been an employee with a company and i get biz cards that
have the company's name and my name on the same document, i can say
that i represent the company in some manner. i don't mind at all
saying that the fruits of my efforts ended up in Eventide or Wave
Mechanics (now known as SoundToys) or Kurzweil, and the companies
can't (and don't) deny that fact. it's different when i consult/
but one thing that is different, although i must (and do) respect
their trade secrets that i may come upon in the work that i do for
companies i contract with, the novel contribution *i* make as a
contractor is not their property, but mine (or in the public
domain). i can't go say "I've implemented algorithm X for the work
I've done for company Y." but i can say i've done this algorithm X
and speak publicly about it or, at my own discretion, keep it secret
and use it again for work that i do for company Y's competitor.
i am told that my name appears (among other engineers) in the power-
up or "About .." window in the PC3, so i think that it would not make
any trouble if i said that i designed and implemented some synthesis
features in the PC3 and they can't sue me for revealing any
confidential information. but there are certainly limits to how much
detail i can go into.
