Movin' On....

warm smile
So I guess its all finalized, signed the paper yesterday, and am no longer an employee of Six Apart. Been almost three years since I started working for Brad as a senior in high school. Been a really interesting few years, learned a good deal, met a lot of awesome people, and had a great time. Decided it is however time to move on for an opportunity where I'll be able to learn a good deal of new stuff and I'm overdue for a change of pace.

Taking next week off, attending the Internet Identity Workshop next Monday through Wednesday. Then figure two days of chillaxin' before I start at VeriSign the following Monday. The job is in Mountain View on working for their Advanced Products and Research Group within their Information Services group that handles .com/.net registration, real time publishing, digital brand management services, and intelligent supply chain. Is a small group, paired with a strategy team, that thinks 1-3 years in the future and is described as the feeling of a startup with the resources of a 5000+ person company. Works only on prototypes and I'll get to do a wide variety of things. Also get about 25% travel for business development, partnerships, and implementations. A bit of sys admin work is also thrown in the mix for their "labs" network. Should allow me to learn about all sorts of different things, have fun, and see what it is like working for a large company. So I'm excited!

Went to technopatra's party last night at her place with Joey and Henry. Had a good time, and then Joey and I went over to Berkeley to meet up with Artur and Mischa and join a Werewolf game. Good games and I managed to stay in until the end in both games that I played, lost the first time as a villager though one the second as a Werewolf with Mischa. Got home, slept, and now a BBQ this afternoon!

Woah, cool. Hopefully you'll have as much fun as you had with LJ.

Where is it located again?
