Thank you for your addition, because I’m sure all that you say is true. And you know far more about the development than I’ll learn for a long time…
But for what it’s worth, it still seems important to mention that while third parties made great use of the Apple platform, and contributed greatly to its financial success, Apple retained iron clad control over the design and implementation of the platform itself. Still does I think.
Therefore, to me it seems that if how the Apple platform was developed is used as an analogy, it argues for the same iron clad control over Misty’s development by those who envisioned and began it. How it’s shared later seems different
But that’s just me, so I’ll wait to see how things unfold.
And in the meantime occupy myself with my little attempt at my first skill … and the surprisingly many, ever-expanding, list of little details that weren’t apparent when I began.
Like how to start an On Robot API Skill when Misty boots up.
I mean if it can’t do that, I can’t register my skill to listen to anything … like motion related events … and will never get to Will Robinson’s autonomous “Class M-3 Model B-9 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental ControlRobot” from the original Lost in Space.
Therefore, thank you again … as I head back to my first step (grin … bottom rung) of my own learning curve. Grin … and maybe join you at the top someday. Just not this week for sure.
