I did it today. After working at Microsoft for twelve years, I sat down together with my manager, Ken, and a latte (small with one sugar) this morning and announced that I had decided to leave Microsoft.
The decision was a long time in the making and I'll probably try and explain some it at some point in this weblog but not today. Today I just want to mark this event and to do that I thought I'd start blogging. So welcome to my blog.
I'm feeling calm and optimistic after pondering this change for so long. It feels like the start of a new journey and one for which I don't have a map. But I can also feel some growing excitement as I think through some of the options.
But tomorrow I'm still working. I'm off to visit a bank at Canary Wharf that has some system performance problems.
