Breaking news.

Greetings to all. Wow, it's been quite a while since I've blogged and much has happened since then. I still plan on updating this with some more AppleScript stuff and some other things I've been getting interested in, but I've just been too busy. Stay tuned for more.

The most important news is that I've accepted a position at Google. Pretty exciting for me to be moving from my remote village here in Baltimore to the heart of the Silicon Valley. How this all happened is that I got an email from a Google recruiter through my profile on linkedin.com (I highly recommend this site to everyone), and figured, sure, what the heck, I'll talk to you. After two phone interviews I got a rejection email while I was at WWDC. A week later, I got a call from another recruiter saying that they wanted to bring me in for a live interview. Flew out and had a day of discussion and answering lots of questions and here I sit, offer in hand. I'm going to start there in the end of September. I figure that I've been with my current company for a long long time and it's time for something different. East coast to west coast, Government contractor to commercial search engine giant. Should be fun.

Anyway, it's been a bit of a busy couple of months.
