New Job. Director of Community Development at Gear6

Many people noticed my tweet just over a week ago that I tendered my resignation at Sun Microsystems. Many people asked me "what next?". Here is my What Next:

Today is the first day of my new job at Gear6, as the Director of Community Development.

In part, this means that I will be doing for Gear6 what Jay and then Dups used to do for MySQL.

I'm the face of my company into the Memcached / Gearman / Drizzle / etc communities, and just as importantly, I'm the face of those open source communities into my company.

I was very positively impressed with the people at Gear6 when we were interviewing each other. I truly believe that they want to do The Right Thing, both from an open source community member perspective, and from the perspective of the technology, their customers, and their investors.

Very soon, I'm going to be splitting my "blog existance" into several blogs for different aspects. My current existing LJ will remain for my personal stuff. There will be another one for professional / technical musing, and I will also create and manage one or more blogs just for Gear6's open source and technology topics.
