My last day at Idoox/Systinet/Mercury/HP

I said, “No, I’m never going to leave Hewlett-Packard. It’s my job for life. It’s the best company because it’s so good to engineers.” It really treated us like we were a community and family, and everyone cared about everyone else. Engineers—bottom of the org chart people—could come up with the ideas that would be the next hot products for the company. Everything was open to thought, discussion and innovation. So I would never leave Hewlett-Packard. I was going to be an engineer for life there.

My feelings are very similar - Systinet (now part of HP) was the best company I ever worked for. But it's time to move on and tomorrow will be my last day at Hewlett-Packard...

it was cool experience to work in systinet and to see how it grows from pub-brainstorming, outlet-sparkling, code or sleep start-up to global, policy driven, process oriented enterprise.

i have no doubt that good data will be successful in this asynchronous, remixable, loosely coupled world (despite too many vowels). You know what? dopplr, wdgtbldr and idoox are rather names for tools, not for companies ;-) i have learned a lot...

thank you Roman!

Working at Idoox/Systinet with you was unrepeatable experience. From zero to the company which works without you (it's compliment ;-). It was good work and I wish you even better the good data :-)
