I want to say thanks to everyone who came to the lunch! Thanks for all good words and appreciation!
Just to re-iterate, and for the benefit of those who did not come, I loved working with you and it breaks my heart to leave. You are wonderful people and I enjoyed not just creating the GEO, but helping each and every one of you personally! It was a unique project for me. For the first time in my professional life, I was involved in a project where I could feel the concrete and direct impact of what I am doing and a lot of freedom in what I was doing. This was very important to me and I was thrilled with that.
Unfortunately, good things cannot go on forever, and I am leaving.
I have probably done mistakes along the way, but in general I feel the result and my decisions were not too bad, no matter what. I always needed to focus on things that I was thinking were the most crucial for the project’s success and therefore I have left a few things not done the best way. I am sorry for that and I am sure they will be corrected quickly and efficiently without me.
I am leaving, but I’d love to stay in touch. I have asked that I will be kept on the group mailing lists and I hope that request will be honored. I am always here, ready and glad to help, and also, having extensively worked with Andrey in the past few weeks, I am sure he is a very solid replacement.
Наверное, главное -- признание тех, для кого ты работал.
