A new chapter

June 13, 2006 | Leave a comment

Life is full of changes. Some of them are mundane (new haircut, new car); some of them are exciting (new job, new family). One of the most exciting things you can do is take something you love and transform it from the seed of an idea into something much bigger, that takes you to places you never imagined you could possibly go. Elgg has been one of those things for me.

Some of you might be aware that I’ve been working with the University of Oxford since March last year. I have very much enjoyed my time with them, but it’s meant that Elgg has been a part-time proposition for me. This seems incredible, given the work that’s gone into it, but is nonetheless true, and has meant sometimes working into the small hours of the morning getting things right.

I’m pleased to announce that from Monday, July 3rd, this will no longer be the case.

Dave has been close to full-time for a while, and I’m very happy to be joining him. I think it’s fair to say that we’ve accomplished a lot under this arrangement – but I think it’s also fair to say that we’re going to be able to accomplish a lot more. Indeed, there are some very exciting things lined up for the project over the coming year or so.

And for me? Well, excited doesn’t even begin to cover it.
