After the flurry of stories on Friday and over the weekend (my favorites being Jim Grisanzio's lovely farewell, Matt Asay's surprising testimonial and the original blog written by David Berlind), it will come to no surprise that I'm leaving Sun. I'm off to see if I can have any influence at Intel, a company which has benefitted hugely from the increased popularity of Free and Open Source software around the world. I'm quite sad to leave the many good friends I've made over the years at Sun. Change it always hard.
I'm excited to be going to Intel, though! There will be fascinating challenges (like seeing if I can run my Intel life from a computer running open source software), new people to make friends with (84,000 of them) and hopefully good work to do for the open source movement.
Ciao for now, Sun! Although global, the internet makes this is a very small playground of an industry and I know I'll be seeing you continue to shine!
