March has been a month of great change for K-State. Frank Martin left for the east coast, in a departure you might have heard about at the water cooler. What you probably didn't hear, is that I left in the opposite direction for a new position with the Open Source Lab. Today ends my first week with the Lab, and it's quite a rush.
Working with K-State was interesting and intellectually stimulating in many ways, and I wish the Wildcats I've left behind in Manhattan all the luck in their endevors. K-State has given me a lot of knowledge and experience and it's time to share it with the outside world.
The role I'm taking on with the OSU Open Source Lab is a System Administrator role, managing systems and student workers. This is a unique and wonderful opportunity to contribute back to the open source community that's benefited me personally and professionally. The OSL provides managed and unmanaged systems to a number of projects, and trains student workers as sysops. Not about to propose any major changes, but there's always room for improvement, and I've got a few ideas that need to bake for a while longer yet.
But for now, I think it's time to enjoy the weekend.
