So long, and thanks for all the hits

Peter Glaskowsky wraps up the Speeds and Feeds blog with the announcement that he has been hired by Intel.

With this post, I begin my new career and bring this blog to a close.

As of Monday, I'm a senior systems architect at Intel in Santa Clara, Calif. I'm working for David R. Ditzel, vice president, Hybrid Parallel Computing. Ditzel is perhaps best known as a founder and CEO of Transmeta. He was also a CTO at Sun Microsystems and, while at Bell Labs in 1980, co-author of a seminal paper on Reduced Instruction-Set Computing (RISC).

I can't say any more about what we're working on. Please don't ask. :-)

Suffice it to say that this job is a perfect fit for my skills and experience. I'm looking forward to being part of a great team, doing important work, and having some fun along the way.

I've really enjoyed doing this blog over the last two and a half years, and I appreciate all the attention: a couple million page hits overall.

I hope I get a chance to do this again some day. In the meantime, I have work to do!
