(Or subscribe to the podcast feed.)Greg Robbins is Graphing Calculator co-author (a story you should already know about, that we don’t go over again) and has done such diverse things as bringing translucency to the Mac OS Drag Manager (way back in the ’90s), and writing an open source Objective-C library for Google Data APIs.
