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.


  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).
