For those who don't know, Katharine Neil (up until last friday audio architect @ atari) is leaving us [:(]. She's moving to France tomorrow morning.
I don't want to say too much about the things she's been up to while here, and I'm not going to say anything about why she's leaving- except that it's not because she's going straight to another games company, but this is (imho) quite a blow- amongst many, many other things she was central to getting freeplay started, and a lot of you have probably met her there. Katharine and I shared an audio/music programming supervisor ages ago when we were both studying in the La Trobe uni music dept.
Best of luck to her in her travels [:)]
