I just moved offices at work and noticed this tag stuck to the bottom of my bookshelf:It’s a visitor badge from IBM Westford. I had resigned from IBM a week earlier and returned as a visitor on August 4th to collect my personal belongings from my old office. I was already a Microsoft employee by that point (in fact I just got my five year service award). We were busy packing up our home for the move to Seattle. It was sad to say goodbye to friends in Boston but we’ve really enjoyed living out here. (And visitors are welcome!).
I just wish that we got back to Boston more frequently. Five years of living in such a friendly place is wearing down my East Coast nature.
