CyanogenMod Founder Moves to the Dark Side

Steve Kondik, the founder of the de-facto custom Android firmware CyanogenMod, is now working at Samsung. He promises that he will be “working on making Android more awesome“, which is fantastic news, and judging by his Twitter feed he will continue to develop CyanogenMod in his spare time. We expect that many of his improvements will be made to Samsung’s proprietary¬†TouchWiz interface (not vanilla Android), so Kondik’s new job may not have an immediate or direct impact on the OS’s source code, but it is nevertheless great to see hardworking developers get recognized for their brillance.
