Leaving Google


Today is my last day at Google. It has been a wonderful place to work filled with excellent coworkers.

I am sad to be leaving Fuchsia before 1.0. As an operating system it gets so many things right. No doubt I will get a chance to be a user.

For the foreseeable future I'm going to be doing childcare and starting a software business. Details to follow, first I have some prototyping to do.

Inside Google, there is a domain-locked version of Google+. (It is a service available to all business customers, I believe.) For the past five years it has served almost all of my social media needs. Its quality peak was probably 2-3 years ago, but it still has the best SNR of any fun-yet-educational distraction I have found so far. Now that its gone I will have to see what else there is.

As part of that, I should blog more. Not sure if that will happen, but I'll give it a shot.
