After almost sixteen years at IBM I've made the most difficult decision since leaving Vancouver to work for IBM in Toronto: I've resigned from IBM. Where will I be going? I'm not sure yet, but don't expect to see any less of me!
Being independent, like Jeff and Chris, certainly has a great deal of appeal. I'm also very excited by the things I see Itemis, Obeo, TOPCASED, and the rest of the diverse community doing in the modeling space. Of course to say I'm excited by what's happening is an understatement since that's the primary motivation for my decision: to focus on exciting and innovative new things of my own choosing. The Eclipse community is both inspiring and empowering. I'm grateful to be part of it. Expect that to continue and then some as I immerse myself fully.
So long IBM, and thanks for all the open source!
