Transitions

Today is my last day working for Sun Microsystems. I've spent time reflecting on this transition as leaving Sun is a big deal. I work with great people at a great company and that's always hard to leave behind. I tendered my resignation to take on a new adventure and re-enter the world of consulting. I will be working at EatonGolden as of Thursday, November 29th as the Director of Information Architecture and Social Media. 

For the people at Sun, you are smart and heroic. I value the time I have spent here with you and I hope together we have made the things we've touched better.

For Sun customers, thank you for all that you've given to Sun. Without you, we wouldn't be here.

If you want to find me, I'll be blogging at EatonGolden's site soon.

I'll leave you with a parting thought. Life is complicated and can be overwhelming. You can never do it all, but you can always do something. In the immortal words of Teddy Roosevelt, 'Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.'

Ciao for now!

Sometimes the Convergence Is Just Too Much to Take :)

I spoke at an event last week with a consultant we worked with on creating the new Sun.com home page. One of the great things about getting out there and speaking is meeting people. I met an individual that knows Sun very well and actually competes with Sun selling used Sun servers. After the event, he sent me a link to his blog post and it just tickled me for several reasons.

The main reason was that in a former life, I worked pretty closely with the Art Car scene when I worked at Intermedia Arts. I got first hand experience with the Art Car artists and the parade. I even met Harrod Blank of Camera Van fame.

Now, working at Sun, we've got the Data Center on wheels. It's coming to MN soon and I'm really excited to go visit. If you live in MN, you can go visit too.

So the convergence happened when Corey sent me this link to his blog post: Sun’s DataCenterMobile, the Wienermobile and other type hits.

And it hit me, Sun has its own 'art car' traveling around the country. I'm still working with those 'crazy art car artists'. ;)
