Goodbye AOL; Hello Google!

Today is my last day at AOL.  I celebrated my binary millennial in February, and it's time to move on... to some exciting new things over at Google.  I'm going to continue to work in the community/social networking area and I plan to keep gently evangelizing user centric identity, REST, Atom, and feed technologies, among many other things.  And, yes, getting products out the door too.  It'll be fun.

I don't know yet if I'll continue using this blog; but regardless, http://abstractioneer.org will always resolve to where I'm blogging (anything can be solved with one level of indirection).  And =john.panzer will always reach me.
