Caleb: Daddy! They took away my California job!!! And they put me back in College! And they took away my job from Sourceforge!

Caleb (pretend writing): California job.

Caleb (holding little desk up to ear like a phone): Ok, could you please give my california job back?

(Caleb mumbles a pretend response from the pretend, gigantic phone)

Caleb: Why not?

(Caleb mumbles a pretend response from the pretend, gigantic phone)

Caleb: Well it's my Job! Send it back!

(Caleb mumbles a pretend response from the pretend, gigantic phone and then a forlorn "Okaaay" from the person on the other end of the line)

Caleb: There it is! It's back!

Caleb: I was talking to Luke, but they sent me back my california job.

Well, as you can tell, it's official. I'm leaving Sourceforge.net for Ning. It was a hard decision because I love sf.net and have immensely enjoyed my time there, but I think Ning is the right place for me to be right now. This is not the greatest of times to switch horses, since I'm still struggling to finish the ol' masters thesis, but everything has pretty much worked out so well so far.

I'm going to miss my many talented and wonderful colleagues at sf.net. They've treated me with immense patience, kindness and have quite expertly and charitably taught me so many different things about running a big website these last few years, not to mention the many more personal, non-technical lessons I've learned from them all.

I'm looking forward to more growing experiences with Ning and getting to be involved with another Silicon Valley company which by all accounts seems to have built quite a wonderful engineering staff who I'm sure will have loads of things to teach me, too.

Um, Caleb is the funniest kid ever. Also, I'm happy for you and the new job. And, I think it will be fun to say the word "Ning" more.

Someone:"Hey, where does your brother work?"
Me: "Ning."
Someone:"What did you say?"
Me: "Ning."
Someone: "Where?"
Me: "Ning."
Someone: "Huh."
