A New Equilibrium

leave a comment »

I used to spend a lot of time on this open source project, and that’s recently changed: I’m now doing it even more. Sakai has brought me on as product manager.

I used to hold a respectable post at a respectable research institution, and would often be found next to actual people at a place where you could probably find me on any given day. I still hold that respectable post, technically, but the rest of it is out. The physical world is just for making sure I’m getting enough sustenance and charging my laptop for same, but the real world is the place where I am my avatar. Or at least it feels that way until I find my new rhythm.

The upside is that there are a lot of good things happening in Sakai, and I’m now in a position to try and take credit for them. Sure, go ahead, laugh it up.
