New iPastures

So, there comes a time when we all have to figure out what makes us happy. For me, I finally think I’ve found a place I can be truly content. A lot of my work in free software has been about usability and building communities, which is why it won’t come as a huge shock when I say that I’ve accepted a job with Apple, in California.
On May 12th, I’ll be moving to San Francisco and will start working in Cupertino shortly after.
I’m going to be working within the Mac product group, working on the next version of Mac OS X. I hope at least part of my job will building relations with the open source community, but initially I’ll be working on user interfaces and won’t have much time for that.
For now, my email will continue to work, but if you have any questions, email them to and I’ll get back to you.
I realise this represents something of a change in direction for me. It won’t be an entirely smooth transition, but I hope at least that my friends and readers will be easy on me.
UPDATE: It seems a LOT of people fell for this one. Sorry, but this was just another April Fools 🙂
