Lately life has changed a lot. The first massive, huge, enormous, life altering change is that I'm now a daddy. More proof that there should be licenses or something required before becoming a parent. It's been several weeks since my daughter was born and life will, of course, never be like it was before but at least I can sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time. In case having a new child wasn't enough Marina and I bought a new house a few weeks ago. And, just to finish up the trifecta of stress, I quit BEA and went to work for Satan er I mean the Borg oops I mean the Dark Side, damn, no, I mean Microsoft. Let us hope the loving care I give to my daughter is enough to reclaim my immortal soul (again).

The stuff we are doing is actually very cool. Our biggest challenge is finding good quality developers to help us do it. We have head count up the wazoo (basically if we can find ’em, we can hire ’em) so we just have to find people who are good enough to help make what we are trying to do happen. I need to chat a bit with my boss to understand what I’m allowed to say externally but I expect to have a pretty full featured explanation posted to the blog in the near future.
Wow! And congratulations. I was thrilled to stumble over your comment on a John Montgomery post. I guess life is way different and has taken many crucial turns since the DAV Book of Why [;
