Just a few months ago I never would have thought I’d work on anything other than Newspeak for the foreseeable future. Working with Gilad, Peter, and others was a fantastic experience, and building a programming platform almost from scratch without political and marketing baggage attached was not a job you find every day on monster.com. But it turns out sometimes the foreseeable future runs out sooner than you expect.
The end of full-time Newspeak work is a sad thing, but I’m not writing this to cry over spilt milk. They say new beginnings bring new opportunities, and this is how I want to look at it. I have just finished my first week working for Google.
