Well there’s been a decline in his activity, but I suppose that’s to be expected. He said in one of his more recent vids that he planned on keeping his YouTube channel separate from work stuff. I would expect him to involve some of it, but still continue to do the other stuff as well.
I’m sure it’s a sticky situation. Before if he thought something was shitty he could just say so. Now representing a company that would be looked upon as bashing another company, probably not the best either. On the other hand, since he has design influence at chilled, I would expect him to design boards the way he wants to see them. And being the essential third party for so long he has a good amount of knowledge to where competitors have weakness. So if they could make something that targets that, why wouldn’t he come out and say so right?
Like you said, we’ll see. But probably best to keep an open mind.
