Leaving Seesmic

2009-03-19 19:38:00

I started at Seesmic a little over a year ago, and it's been great helping the platform grow from a full-page Flash app prototype to an Ajaxy Web app backed by a solid REST API.

There is a time for every purpose under the sun, and now it's time for me to be moving on to other projects better aligned with my personal career goals.

I'm really proud of the work I did at Seesmic, and some of the early technology choices we made (particularly Merb) have proven to be excellent bets.

I also feel extremely fortunate in the great people I've gotten to work with there, and owe Loic a huge debt of gratitude for that opportunity. I remain a Seesmic shareholder, and a big believer in what they're trying to do with the platform. I look forward to seeing where they take it.

Not sure what's ahead for me yet -- I have just started my job search, but I will be blogging (and microblogging) about the process as it unfolds.

It’s been a real pleasure working with you all the time that I was on seesmic. Keep up the good work in your future projects, and let me know when you are traveling to Europe, so we can have lots of beers.
