Changes

So it ends. I've been at Sun since March of 1989 (with a couple of years off for good behavior), and for the last 10 years I've worked on internal processes, tools and problem solving related to software development, systems architecture and product delivery. Much of my focus has been on OpenSolaris, in the Architecture community as well as serving on the OGB. Today, I was informed that my position has been eliminated, and I was being laid off.

I intend to remain active in the OpenSolaris community, though I expect to start participating in other areas (Arduino is cool, JMRI is as well, and I want to help make both available in an OpenSolaris repository ASAP)

Since this may well be my last blog post here, the following links should help keep you in touch:

See you around,
   - John

Good luck John! My girl Rosalynn will miss the doggy treats she got from you when I'd bring her in the office :)

I'll think of you every time I hear the alarms on the MPK17 doors. I'll miss you!

Suckage to lose you - if there's anything I can do, let me know.

Such a sad thing to lose you; I'll always remember the long, tho infrequent, association.
Hey, good luck with the next steps and hopefully you'll boomerang back to Sun some day.
