December 11 2009 So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
It has been an exciting ride but my time at AOL has come to an end. I spent six years at AOL and I will look back upon those years with fond memories. At AOL I worked with many smart, driven people and I wish them all the best. Under Tim Armstrong’s leadership, AOL is transforming itself into a low-cost content machine and if online ad rates come back, it might just work.
At AOL, I had the opportunity to work on a ton of interesting projects and build a wide array of websites. One of the very first projects that I helped build was AOL Call Alert and I just chuckled when I realized that it actually still exists! Recently, my focus has been on building in-house performance tools to measure, analyze and improve the speed and availability of AOL websites like AOL, TMZ, Fanhouse, Engadget and Politics Daily.
I learned many things at AOL, including the realization that I enjoy conceiving, designing and building websites. Now that I’m a free agent, I’m excited to apply everything that I have learned about building world-class websites to new opportunities. Building and growing a personal blog is something that I finally have time to do.
