I officially start my new job with IBM's WebAhead group today. On a day-to-day basis, not much will change. I'm still working from home full-time, still working on Atom-stuff pretty much full time, and still focusing on developing interesting emerging technologies. The real difference is who I'm doing this work for. Rather than focusing on standards and emerging technologies for the sake of product development efforts, I'm doing it mainly for the sake of supporting IBM's own business. I will continue to support various syndication efforts going on in Lotus and DB2 but, for the most part, my main interest is in developing tools that will help IBMers do their jobs better.
