In early 2010, I was elected by fellow marketing team members to lead
the marketing team. I've been grateful for the support and have
thoroughly enjoyed everyone's participation in the team as we moved
forward. And on a personal level, I've had the real pleasure to meet so
many of you in person across the globe. You are all so amazingly
energized and hard-working.
Times have moved forward since those early days. This is truly an
empowered marketing team and so many of you have a clearer definition of
what your roles are when it comes to supporting and marketing the
openSUSE Project. For me, the evolution is stunning. But that's not
to say we don't have more work to do. Of course, there's still more
opportunities to build stronger campaigns, effective organization and
highly visible awareness of the Project to the world. But these are
ongoing things that will always have "opportunities for improvement."
I've loved working with so many of you. But at the same time, I have
expended many hours of my life on this and I need to start taking care
of myself and addressing my own needs as well. I am also beginning a
job search. I took two years off from work to give openSUSE my
full-time attention and now I need to give Bryen my full time attention.
Therefore, with the launch of 12.1, I will step down from my role as
Marketing Team lead.
But this doesn't mean that I'll be gone! :-) Far from it, I'll still
be around and helping out and supporting the openSUSE Project in any way
that I can.
So let's keep that openSUSE Fire burning and thank you all for giving me
such a rewarding experience.
