Next Chapter

I am going to start the next chapter of my career at Collaborative Software Initiative.

As I get my feet under me there in the coming weeks I'll say more about it.

I have had a fantastic time in my current position & have learned a ton. I have worked with wonderful & brilliant people. Leaving is definitely bittersweet.

But this opportunity is where my heart is. I am passionate about open source and more specifically open source in vertical markets & government.

You only live once & you only get a shot at fulfilling your dreams a couple times. When opportunity knocks you must jump with both feet.

Wish me luck.

The contrarian in me wants to say something snarky but I just can't bring myself to do it. Best of luck in your new venture, bruddah. As to the Guiness, well, hoist a PBR tallboy for me.

Good luck Mike!

There's huge potential, if you can get cross-agency/dept thing dealt with.
