@Beaker Performs A vMotion…

The hundreds of tweets of folks guessing as to where I might end up may have been a clue.

Then again, some of you are wise to steer well and clear of The Twitters.
In case you haven’t heard, I’ve decided to leave Cisco and journey over to the “new” hotness that is Juniper.

The reasons. C’mon, really?

OK: Lots of awesome people, innovative technology AND execution, a manageable size, some very interesting new challenges and the ever-present need to change the way the world thinks about, talks about and operationalizes “security.”*

The Beakerettes and I are on our way, moving to San Jose next week and I start at the Big J on July 5th.

All my other hobbies, bad habits (Twitter, this here blog) and side projects (HacKid, CloudAudit, etc.) remain intact.

Catch you all on the flip side.


* So this is getting interpreted oddly. I really had a great time working at Cisco. I worked very hard there.  I felt like I moved the needle, mostly internally.  I had exposure to an amazing amount of technology and people for which I am extremely grateful.  What I also found is that I need to work in a smaller company where the change I bring can be absorbed and utilized at a pace that meets my needs as well as my employer’s.  I’m really looking forward to being able to do that at Juniper.
