24 Sun Months · Gosh, I missed my an­niver­sary a week back. I stand by pret­ty well ev­ery­thing I said this time last year. The things I’m try­ing to con­vince Sun to do now are much hard­er than turn­ing on blog­ging, so it’s more painful and slow­er and some­times I spend a whole day in a bad mood. But I’m not giv­ing up, no no no. I’ve got­ten emo­tion­al­ly en­gaged, this com­pa­ny still has some moss on the sides and some grit in the gears, but with a lit­tle more shak­ing out and scrub­bing down, has the po­ten­tial to be great again, and it’s worth try­ing. Here’s one rea­son: Right now, I don’t think any­one re­al­ly knows how soft­ware de­vel­op­ers are go­ing to be go­ing about their busi­ness in five years. In some re­spects a mo­ment of un­usu­al clar­i­ty, be­cause we know that we don’t know. Here’s some­thing cool: two or three times in the last few month­s, I’ve talked to some­one here who want­ed to do some­thing about some­thing, and I’ve said “You need to talk to...” and in­tro­duced them to some­one else here that they hadn’t known.
