The Closeness Between Red and Pink

[ #4521 ]

This was originally a much longer, much more biting screed. For whatever reason, I couldn't sleep after writing it, and I've decided to remove the majority of it. Sorry, but that's just what I feel is best. These days, I can never be sure who will Google me and find something worth denying me a job over.

I am no longer an employee of Red Hat, Inc.

I didn't work alone in web engineering at Red Hat-- I'd always been a part of a team, and the others in my team who remain, I wish the best for. They're good engineers, as well as good programmers.

I don't hate Red Hat. I was running RH Linux on my boxes before I worked there, and I'll continue to do so (at least until/unless I get a job for which I need a different type of testing platform available to me). I intend to continue writing the Perl-RPM bindings I've been working on. And best of all, I now have time to work with more dedication on my book. So there is a silver lining of sorts here, I guess.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
