Today marks a new chapter in Metaversant‘s evolution with two important milestones. Our first new hire starts today and does so in our new office space. Swati Aparaju is a Java developer making the transition from Documentum to Alfresco. Swati and I worked together at Navigator and Hitachi and I’m excited to get her going on client work and on some Metaversant-sponsored open source initiatives. Welcome aboard, Swati!
As Semisonic so wisely sang, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end,” and in this case, the beginning’s end is my five-year streak working out of the house. There are so many things I love about working out of the house, and I swore I’d never go back to an office, but in this case, with Swati in the same town, it just made sense for us to collaborate face-to-face. I’m sure we’ll move to a part-time same space/part-time cyberspace model at some point, but for now, it’s back to a daily commute.
