Prologue: Google!

I am jubilant to announce that I have accepted an offer of employment from Google, a public corporation specializing in search, advertising, and unabated innovation.

Joining the staff of the Open Source Program Office, purveyors of such wonderful offerings as the Summer of Code, I shall remain in Boston.

I will leverage a few weeks of anything-but-relaxing unemployment to finish my latest book, move across the river, and advise political campaigns, then I will hit the ground running.
