Moving!

I’ve been [comparatively] quiet for a while now, and I can finally announce the results of my endeavours: I’ve resigned from Internode (ie. iiNet) in order to accept a position at Google in Sydney.

This means that Missy and I and our kids are all packing our bags and getting ready to head eastwards, looking forward to new and exciting adventures.

FAQ:

  1. When? My last week in Adelaide is the week of the 22nd of April.
  2. What will you do at Google? I’ll be a Site Reliability Engineer (which is kinda like a sysadmin).
  3. Why leave? Because it’s the right time, and I’m looking for new challenges.
  4. Why Google? It seems like a good fit for interests and for me personally. The folk I know there are generally pretty awesome, and I intend to learn as much as I can from them.

As a final note, I’d like to thank Simon Hackett and Adam Fox for their support and encouragement over the past few years; without them, I don’t think I’d be where I am now.

(FWIW, I started coming up with a list of people I’d like to thank, but it was unmanageably long — “Thank you” to the rest of you too; you should know who you are).
