Its been three years and nine months since I started vPivot. At that time I had the enviable position of sitting a few feet from the greatest engineering team I have ever known. Because of nothing more than my proximity to them, I was able to serve VMware’s customers this blog, which peaked with thousands of hits a day. You guys liked it and I loved doing it.
But in the last few months my blog production has declined significantly. Part of that was due to my changed role to a consumer of information instead of a producer. And part of that decline originated with a change of of heart in terms of what I want to do. Because of that change of heart I last week resigned from EMC. I will be spending many months pursuing some personal interests.
At this point I have nothing more to contribute to this blog. I may start professionally writing again after my sabbatical. But I am just as likely to write on a new blog as here. But I will leave this content online indefinitely should any of the articles prove useful.
Thank you to VMware for letting me contribute a drop to the incredible wave of virtualization that washed over the industry. Thank you to EMC for bringing me to Asia and teaching me business, both that of a vendor and the customers we work so hard for. And thank you to each and every one of you for being a reader.
