An unintended quiet period

So, it's coming up on March, and the last post here is dated early November. What was I doing?

- Celebrating the holidays
- Taking on a new responsibility at work
- Trying to figure out how to build a long, successful career at Google
- Reading Valleywag

In late November my boss asked me to be the engineering liason to Google's new Pittsburgh engineering office. We hired a couple managers to run the show there, but I was asked to come in and help them learn their way around Google.

I'm proud to say that they are off to a running start. Google intends to hire 90 engineers in Pittsburgh within 2 years, and things look good so far. We still haven't announced our permanent location in Pittsburgh, but I'm optimistic that we'll have a great location to announce soon.

As far as building a long, successful career at Google goes, I can't say that I've figured out the best answer, but I'm at least pushing into some new directions. Ideally it won't be another 4 months before I post about that.
