It’s been a hectic week of change for me. I accepted a new position with a growing Web services firm here in Atlanta, and resigned from my existing position. It was a terribly difficult decision for me to make, but I think I made the right decision.
I’ve spent much of the time at my current position fighting against a print-centric culture. It’s very difficult to make a culture shift in a company happen when it doesn’t live or die by the change. I think that, in the long run, print companies will be forced to make serious commitments to the Web, but some aren’t ready yet.
Tougher still, was leaving the people. I work with a group of people that I really like and respect. Some of them have contributed to my professional growth more than they will ever know.
Moving forward, the new company is young, hungry and growing. It’s all about where I want to be.
My iBook arrived yesterday, but the video fizzled out after about an hour. Apple is shipping me a new one. I like it. It has a great tactile feel, seemed plenty fast while I was using it. It’s definitely a consumer machine.
There are pictures of the next generation iMac posted here.
According to today’s Saturn, Jack and Michal had lunch without me.
