Starting today I'm working at Newbay. The idea of building out systems that reach many millions of people, on phones, is as compelling as the way Newbay are going about it. It's an exciting and vibrant space; not just in the way it allows people to connect, but also the engineering challenges involved in providing the platforms that allow the scaling of systems to achieve robust performance and availability.

To former colleagues at Propylon; many thanks, I'm proud to have contributed there for going on the last five years and I wish you every success.

Take the opportunity to do a little 'embedded' programming while you're at it, if you're going there primarily to work on the server. It's way different than the desktop and server world ...

If you are going to do any mobile programming, it will be interesting to watch your descent into madness. If so, welcome to the club! If not, enjoy that plush server environment!
