“Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.” – Voltaire
The last couple of years have been part of a journey that took me away from public writing. My choice of employment at the time came with many constraints that makes sharing your ideas and experiences difficult. My blog had become stale and virtually abandoned. Most of my previous writing was either quickly written or vague. I tried to force myself to write when I really didn’t have the time or wasn’t allowed to write to any level of detail about my projects.
Life has changed for me. I recently started working for Red Hat and their company culture based on collaboration, sharing, and open communication is a sharp contrast to the last four years of my career. I love working with a bunch of talented people who are very passionate about what they do. My work is now in the community; it’s open and available for anyone to see. It will be exciting to see what unfolds for me in this new phase of my career.
I have hopes to write more and to share a voice. Hopefully the choices of my past haven’t formed bad habits in procrastination too much (I am a developer though).
