Leaving Pheedo

Freshness Warning
This article is over 14 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

I’ve resigned from Pheedo, the company I helped found, to pursue other projects.

I’ve built a great technical team over the last year and I’m proud of the work they’ve done up to this point. I’m sure they’ll continue to build exciting products in my absence.

What other projects am I pursuing? I don’t know exactly at this point. I have some things bubbling in my head, but nothing terribly solid as of yet. I’ll be blogging more; while at Pheedo I was unable to blog about most of the things I wanted to because doing so would have shown our competition what we were up to. Other than that, who knows? If you’ve got some ideas or suggestions, please let me know.

Now you'll have time to jump in the RoR pool like the rest of us ;) Any plans to come down to the South Bay soon? Would love to have a meal or coffee together, let me know.

I'm interested to see what you have coming down the pike. I'm sure it'll be something awesome. All the best.
