Hm, so, it's back to the dreaded 'blank page' of a start up blog! Intimidating, daunting, exciting. Will anyone care what I have to say? After being ask to change roles at my previous employer, Adobe, I opted to take a break from writing. As it turned out, the break was a little longer than I anticipated, however, I'm now feeling inspired to participate again!
I recently joined a new company, Cleversafe as the Director of Federal Solutions (I'm so happy to be back on the government side of a company!). We are a smaller company focused on solving the challenges associated with scaling systems to deal with extremely large amounts of data, systems where a petabyte is nothing more than a starting point!
So, coming from my solutions background, where much of my time has been focused on user experience and other such topics, moving into a more infrastructure-centric company has opened a whole new set of topics for me to delve into.
I'm looking forward to sharing with and learning from as many people as possible. And occasionally, because I do tend to allow my attention to wander, I may stray from the path of technology and chat about music, movies, books, dogs, kids or whatever else may come to mind!
Thanks for coming along for the ride.
