Elvis has left the building…

It’s amazing how quickly 5 years can go by. Today was my last day working for Virage, Inc., and I have to say it was a pretty decent experience. A lot has happened over that period of time; went though our IPO, struck by the down turn of the market and had to lay off a bunch of good people, all in the end to be acquired by Autonomy, Inc. All in all, it was a great time, but now I am ready for something new.

What’s new?! You ask… Well MailFrontier to be exact, but they’ll have wait a week while I take some time to relax and clear my head.

  1. Well, congratulations!! Virage and Autonomy were damn lucky to have you for as long as they did. I’m sure you’ll do quite well at MailFrontier.

    Here I moved all the way across the country and I am writing C# and Javascript code. I could have done that in SF. Enjoy the Sunshine and California lifestyle while you can. Good Luck!

  2. Good luck man. I hope this works out for you. I have the uncharacteristically optimistic feeling we are on the verge of interesting times in the software industry again. It is like 1992 all over. Hell this stuff is almost fun again. I hope you feel the same.

    Cheers…

  3. did you tell me about this when you were in Austin and I just forgot? anyway, good luck with your endeavours. if your efforts at MailFrontier usher in the Era of No Spam, i will bear your children.

  4. Thanks! I’m really looking forward to starting on something fresh, it should be a good gig…

    Come on Peter, you didn’t just move across the country to write C# and Javascript. We know you are a huge Red Sox fan at heart! :)

    And yes, the industry is moving into some interesting directions. We’ll just have to wait and see if it turns the way it did back in the early 90′s.

  5. Congratulations! It really doesn’t seem like 5 years have gone by. I’m looking forward to hearing about the new job, do you know yet what technologies you’ll be using?

  6. It’s about @#$%! time! Congratulations, dude! Go NOMAR!

  7. Cool! Too bad about virage, though. I’m sure the new job is better. Sounds more interesting at any rate!
