Sydney

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. I’ve actually had a lot of material for blogposts, most recently about my adventures with scsh, but it somehow doesn’t manage to get from my head onto the blog.

So, what’s new with me? Well…

A few months ago I left the v8 project which I had worked on almost since it started. I’ve enjoyed working on v8 a lot and it’s been a great experience to be an active part in the browser race over the last few years. However, I always knew that I wasn’t going to spend the rest of my life implementing JavaScript.

Last year I visited Sydney and spent a few weeks working at Google’s office there. I happened to be there during the first big demo of Google Wave and watched it with the team which is mainly located in Sydney. I was totally blown away, and that feeling never really wore off. It’s now one year and quite a bit of paperwork later; I’m now living in Sydney and working on wave.

Wave is a very different kind of project than v8 and a departure from the programming language related projects I’ve worked on so far. That’s a feature, not a bug.

Of course, now that I’m drinking the wave Kool-Aid I simply must include a wave element for comments.
