Moving West

This is going to be my last post for several days as I begin the process of moving to San Francisco. I’ve basically lived in the Washington DC area for my entire life (other than living overseas, which for some reason doesn’t really seem to count), so I figured it was time to give the west coast a shot. Besides, Macromedia just moved into a brand new office space, and I was feeling very left out.

I want to thank all my friends and family here in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia area for everything they have done for me over the years, and for the wonderful sendoffs over the weekend. I will come back and visit as often as I can, and hopefully lure you guys out to California to visit frequently, as well. (JavaOne, Flashforward, Macworld, etc!)

I’m really looking forward to starting a new life out in San Francisco. It’s much easier moving coast to coast when you’re not changing jobs, and you already have a lot of friends waiting for you on the other end. And I’m really looking forward to working with everyone at Macromedia in person on a day to day basis, as well. They are a great bunch of people working on some very cool technology, and I’m lucky to be a part of the team.

If you’ve sent me anything within the last few days, or if you send me anything in the next few days, it might be a while before you get a response. This move is going to be a long process, and I can’t tell how connected I’m going to be over the next couple weeks. I promise I’ll get to everything eventually, though.

Signing off for now…

    Sayanara from the East Coast. Our loss is their gain. At least you’ll be getting away from all of this snow!

    Mike, don’t worry… all the CF folks in the Macromedia east coast office will be taking the hit for Christian today, with 8-12+ on its way…San Francisco will be a walk in the park, or a Segway scooter ride at least 🙂

    You know I’m wringing my hands in delight at more potential speakers. 🙂 BACFUG meetings are moving to the third Wednesday of the month.
