jimr became an active employee on Monday November 6, 2006 (365 days ago).

One year!

Exactly one year ago I was in Mountain View, sitting in the courtyard eating Wagyu steak from Charlies’ Cafe, watching to my left a scale-model T-Rex get assembled, and to my right, a bunch of engineers running through one of those inflatable obstacle course things.

It’s crazy. Seems like I’ve been here much longer, but also, like I’ve only been here a few months.

Oh and, of course, my non-solicit with Microsoft has expired and as such, I now can concentrate on recruiting everyone I enjoyed working with at Microsoft. Bwa-ha-ha-ha.
