FMI Road Maps and Tim Dietrich

Do any of you remember when Tim Dietrich left the FileMaker community?  One of his biggest issues he publicly made about abandoning FM was that FMI did not have a public roadmap.  It makes me wonder if FMI was listening and Tim had an influence in FMI's decision to start giving us a Road Map in November each year.  I guess the reason I was thinking about this is that I got to meet with Rick Kalman last week in FMI Product Development and it was a very positive meeting and I appreciate him taking time to meet with our group.  While I sometimes am cynical about FMI responding to feedback from the FBA community and sometimes feel the "parter" relationship is more of a unidirectional relationship, this was to the contrary (thank you Rick!).  While FMI obviously has to keep things under their hat, good communication goes a long ways.  Anyway, if Tim influenced FMI to make the Roadmap changes, I appreciate it even if we had to loose a very good FM developer over it.
