Now it can be told… I’ve resigned from The OPAL Group, effective the end of May.  I do this not because there were any problems; actually it’s a fine place to work and a great group of guys.  The decision to leave them actually caused me a good deal of stress and a certain measure of guilt.  However, it’s all in a good cause:  I’m taking a position with Netscape Communications as a “standards evangelist.”  This move will definitely give me a chance to have a bigger impact on the shape and direction of Web browser development, both now and in the future.  Even better, the position does not require me to relocate.  This has been more than two months in coming, between the time Netscape contacted me and today.  The long delay should help explain some of the stress reflected in my posts here on meyerweb.com.

So that’s the news for now.  It’s scary and exciting all at once, as most major life changes tend to be—but at the very least, I will have followed up all my talk about the importance of standards with a commitment to work towards improving support, and that’s worth a lot to me.

Eric has officially left CWRU, which means that he’s technically unemployed until Monday, when he starts work with a firm known as The OPAL Group.  He’s joining a start-up division, which means it has all the advantages of an ordinary start-up with the established-company luxury of having a list of clients already waiting; literally, the best of both worlds.  CSS:TDG continues to move up the Amazon.com sales rankings, at one point reaching 51,270.  (I’ve heard that the book has already sold well over 2,000 copies—and it hasn’t even gone to the printers yet!)

Never content with one major turning point at a time, Eric recently decided to leave CWRU to take a senior position with a Cleveland-area information technology firm.  More details will be made available after his last day of work at CWRU, which will be Friday, 17 March 2000.  In the meantime, today’s Amazon.com sales ranking of CSS:TDG is 727,582.  Woo!  Smokin’!
