It should be noted that this is not the Bruce Pollock who in August 2004 was named chairman of The Voice XML Forum. That Bruce Pollock was the West Corporation's Director of Strategic Technology Solutions
The VoiceXML Forum is an industry organization that promotes the use of Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) in speech applications. Pollock has served on the organization's Board of Directors since September, 2003.
Neither is this the Bruce Pollock who founded Guitar: For The Practicing Musician magazine in the ‘80s and who has authored When The Music Mattered: Rock In the 1960s, Troubadours Of The Folk Era and Working Musicians.
Neither is it the Bruce Pollock who recently staged a one-person exhibit at the 2004 Fleisher Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia, PA and who said “When I look upon the concrete world of objects, things, and representations of things what I see is a reality composed of smaller things. Bodies and organic life composed of cells; glass, brick, stone and steel composed of fused crystalline aggregates; printed material and television of pixels and dot screens, composed of molecules of inks and dyes; plastics of complex polymer bonds.”
Although that’s not a bad perspective to have.
