Thank you for all your time and effort. You have inspired many people.

Yes? Most have contacted me and discussed your work in detail over the years.

It can be quite hard to see work you did go in a direction that you don't like or approve of, without any input or appreciation. Being an open-source developer I imagine you have to be good at breaking emotional ties with the work and letting it loose to see what it might transform into. I couldn't do it, contribute to other projects yes, publish my own project no, my work is too much like my children.
