Last day at Adobe

Feb. 28th, 2007 | 11:09 pm

Today was my last day at Adobe.

I was reading Steve Wozniak’s interview in which he says how he thought he was never going to leave HP:

I said, “No, I’m never going to leave Hewlett-Packard. It’s my job for life. It’s the best company because it’s so good to engineers.” It really treated us like we were a community and family, and everyone cared about everyone else. Engineers—bottom of the org chart people—could come up with the ideas that would be the next hot products for the company. Everything was open to thought, discussion and innovation. So I would never leave Hewlett-Packard. I was going to be an engineer for life there.

I felt the same way about Macromedia and Adobe. It was going to be my job for life! But, alas, all good things must come to an end.

The one question I’m not answering is what I’m doing next. Because I don’t know myself! If you have any brilliant ideas, feel free to email me. For now, I’m just taking a break to go pursue some of my personal interests….

To all my friends at Adobe: stay in touch.
