There comes a time when all good things must end and my time at Google is one of them. This is not one of those "Google let me down" rants, nor is it a "I love this company, keep up the good work" farewell ... just a realization that even as my perf scores and profile within the company has risen my ability to lead has diminished. It's time to stop being part of a team changing the world and time to go lead one. Unfortunately, the place to do that is elsewhere. Today is my last day.
Keep in touch with me on Twitter @docjamesw. Or not.
