Well, yesterday was my last day at IBM.

While I met a lot of good people there (most of whom don't work at the company any longer), I haven't really been happy with my career for some time now. I'm ready for a new challenge.

What's that new challenge? Well, I am actually headed back to school. I'm getting a graduate degree in Information Science (Human Computer Interaction focus) at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I move up there next week. My plan is to spin this into a focus on user experience in virtual/augmented reality, and work on that as my next career.

Here's to new beginnings!

Definitely giving this a shot!

I know a few folks on my Circles will be amused by this. I just got done with my first driving "experience" on Atlanta's illustrious I-285 highway. Oddly enough, no major freak out sessions along the way. I am tempted, however, to go find a couple of city/state planners and...explain to them that this 6-lanes one-way random lane-disappearing monstrosity is not a particularly usable idea in practice. It may very well have been the "best" idea in the overall situation, but that doesn't make it a good one.

Adventures in Random (tm). Replaced the cover art, buttons, and ball top on my arcade stick today. Was kinda fun, and I didn't even break anything in the process! Still a mark 1 effort, but fairly cool nonetheless.
