I recently started feeling a bit like Joey deVilla did before he changed jobs. I was way too comfortable and needed some real challenges to drive my career and personal development forward. That combined with my long standing1 envy of those lucky people involved in startups lead me to explore the startup scene in Boulder2. Now that exploration has paid off.
I have accepted a position on the technical staff of Gnip. I will be joining Eric Marcoullier and Jud Valeski in their efforts to create a compelling bit of web infrastructure. (I will be more forth coming in near future, I promise.) I can’t wait to tackle the challenges this opportunity is going to present.
