So as some of you may have heard, I am moving back to the San Francisco bay area to work for an awesome startup company. To hopefully answer your burning questions, I will give you a pithy lil' FAQ:
You are going to have to rename your blog, huh?
I think I will just start a new one and link it off here.
What's wrong with Amazon?
Nothing. I loved working for them and learned a lot.
Why move then move 840 miles for a new job?
I always wanted to work in a startup atmosphere and make a huge impact on a brand that I can be proud of. I really feel that my work will touch millions of people and that means a lot. If I get to do that and at the same time report directly to one of the founders (who is a great person, by the way) and work in the mecca of the computer industry, what could be better?
Was this an easy decision?
Nope. I took about a month to decide. It's not easy leaving the comforts of the home you just bought and the town that you were just getting the hang of.
Isn't housing and gasoline ridiculously expensive over there?
