Yasu for Mac

A Fork in the Road

A few months ago I opened a mailing list digest that I don’t normally open. Call it fate, call it coincidence, call it what you will, but with that email and the subsequent discussions, Yasu for Mac has taken a fork in the road. I don’t expect the path Yasu will take will be greatly different, but that remains to be seen.

As of last Friday, I took over Yasu from Jim and my hope is to give it as much passion as he obviously did for so many years. Coming from a developer and tech support background, I’ve had plenty of experience with the code that Yasu is written with (AppleScript) and with using Mac Utilities. With that said, I’m excited to see where I can take Yasu, without completely changing what Jim’s vision was. There are plenty of multi-function Mac utilities in the same category as Yasu, but none are as simple to use. What I love about Yasu is I can put it on any client’s Mac regardless of their technical abilities and know that they’ll be able to use it as needed.

I’m excited about being part of Yasu’s future and seeing where it goes, but more importantly I thank Jim for the opportunity to take Yasu further down the road.
