Saying farewell and heading into a new adventure 2009

After over six & a half years at a good company, working with a lot of excellent people on great things for libraries , I'm striking out on my own for the next stage in my career.

I'm very proud of the work I did at [the company I still don't name here in my personal blog]. It's particularly pleasing that a colleague and good friend who I respect very much will be taking over my duties. The icing on the cake is that my library uses the product, so I'll get to enjoy the benefit of all those features I helped create.

As for what's next, I'm returning to my roots. The common thread across all my past jobs has been knocking down roadblocks in people's way. Much of it has involved making things more findable or easy to use, but I've also helped with workflow and productivity in general. A secondary, but closely related skill, is that of synthesis: collecting, integrating, documenting, explaining and teaching.

In all of this, the core is "getting unstuck".

Stay tuned for more information about my new business helping small businesses to eliminate problems slowing them down, improve their relationship with incoming information & tasks, and get back in the flow.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
