You all knew the time would come that I would be moving on from my post at EMC Corporation. I certainly enjoyed working with everyone at EMC and Microsoft over the years. It was great having an impact on EMC’s work with Microsoft on all things Exchange…. The opportunity to become an author for EMC’s Tech Books (look for the Exchange versions coming soon), co-author a MSPress book, speak at numerous events, develop & deliver Microsoft Certified Architect “Exchange Ranger” training, and generally influence how all of EMCs customers use the symmetrix in their implementations……not to mention being the first blogger at EMC – nice to see that they finally caught on!! I sure hope Chuck, Len, & ‘Zilla can lead them out to where they need to be in the blogosphere!! Of course I’ll be watching :)
Where am I off to, competitor? Microsoft? Well, there are lots of other things I want to accomplish in my lifetime, so now that I’ve been at EMC, played with storage and messaging - learned A LOT – it’s time to move on to some of the other things I want to experience!!
Life is short – Unless an experience is something to cherish forever – Use a double-declining depreciation method to value them…. that way you’ll have more leverage to enjoy and learn from the experiences to come…
Of course to be passionate about what your doing you have to find what your doing remotely interesting. I’m sure you’ve all picked up on the fact that Storage and Messaging are not my only interests… and there are a lot of things in the other interests category, but I’m not ready to make all my money in them… so web technologies it is then. This time I’ll have a go with another fascinating concept – Money. Always an interesting thing to work with, for, and in spite of :)
Btw, the blog won’t be removed, the content will change a little (naturally)…. but I’m still looking for free lunches, interesting technologies, and messaging/collaboration will always be a passion of mine.
