Leaving Google

In a few days I’ll be leaving my wonderful job at Google (working on App Engine) and setting out on my own for a while.

It’s been an interesting ride, I’ve learned a lot and my coworkers have been awesome. I think App Engine is one of the coolest projects out there right now and I know they’ll keep up the good work. I’ll still be contributing to Jaiku/JaikuEngine.

As for the future I’ve got a pretty blank slate, and with spring just arriving in San Francisco that feels pretty damn nice. I plan on working on my own projects for a while, but am interested to hear about the cool stuff you’ve got going on, so drop me a line and buy me a beer 🙂

P.S. My new phone number is available on Facebook, update your records 🙂
