Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

goodbye, dublin

I'm in Dublin Airport now, waiting for the plane to start boarding. The last 3 weeks may have been a bit crazy, but the last 5 days were downright insane. Packing, moving, cleaning... I lived in the same apartment in Dublin for more than 3 1/2 years and there was stuff in every corner and crevice. I haven't been able to do much work, or anything else for that matter, just getting everything ready (and, as it happens, during three of the hottest days of the year. Nice weather if you're sitting and relaxed... but if you're lugging around 40-pound boxes, well, not so much).

I returned the apartment yesterday, and have been staying at a friend's since Monday, doing things in the city. And what a great city Dublin is. Definitely one of my favorite cities in the world. I've had a great time here, I've met some really cool people and had a good time, even if I was working in one thing or another for most of it :). Many of us in tech are privileged to work on what we love, and a lot of times work doesn't really seem like "work" at least not according to whatever weird measure I have inside my head.

So: Goodbye, Dublin, and thanks! And (more importantly) thanks to all the people that were there along the way. I'm sure I'll be back sooner or later.

At a minimum, for a fresh pint of Guinness. :)
