A final suggested read

David Reed passed along a pointer to this paper by Dan Geer:

A Time for Choosing

Please read it, and understand the founding spirit of the Internet. And with that, I say goodbye to Oracle.

I'm leaving Oracle, and switching gears

15 years ago I was finishing up last-minute changes at NRL while getting ready to move coasts. While I'm not moving coasts, I'm at the point where I'm finishing up last-minute changes again.

I'm leaving Oracle this week, and will be trying something a bit different after that. I've been doing IPsec or at least TCP/IP related work for the entirety of my time at Sun. I expect to be back in TCP/IP-land relatively soon, but I will be learning some new-to-me technologies in the immediate future.

I've met and worked with some extraordinary people during my time at Sun. I hope to keep in touch with them after I depart. If any of you half-dozen readers wish to keep up, I'd suggest following my Twitter feed until I decide whether or not I find a new home for this blog. I'm also findable on Facebook and LinkedIn for those so inclined.
