Former Apple Executive Richard Kerris Says AR Future Big, Talks About 'Glyph'

Many Architosh readers may remember Richard Kerris from his days at Apple as Senior Director of Developer Technologies (his role from 2001 – 2007) where he led worldwide developer relations and technical marketing across audio, video, photography and other pro apps.
