New year is always appropriate for a new start.
I'm really excited and looking forward to working with smart people like Ben, Mena and all the 6A members, to do some really innovative work in personal publishing platform including Movable Type, TypePad and TypeKey. I can't wait to see what I can do for Six Apart products and users with my past experience in Six Apart friendly technologies (Perl, Apache, mod_perl, MySQL, RSS, Blogging APIs, Web Services, etc.). I'm also proud of being part of one of the web experts' favourite companies.
I'm based in Tokyo, Japan (Six Apart KK Office) but will frequently go back and forth to our new office in San Francisco. Be sure to stay tuned with me in Six Apart!
