A tech company in Okemos? Who’d a thought…

So a few weekends ago I was in the East Lansing Barnes & Noble children’s section with Lila and Chey; we, I mean, Lila was playing with the wooden train set they have. Another couple with a two-year-old train set afficianado came over, and Chey and I started chatting with the couple.

It turns out this lady we met is a product manager at a company called TechSmith in Okemos. They make screen capture software called SnagIt as well as beefed-up screen recording software that they call Camtasia Studio. The software sounds very useful in user-testing. I understand it also sports the ability to record facial expressions via a web cam, and it exports its data as Flash movie files (SWF).
