Hi folks, 

I would like to thank all of you who have contacted me on and off-list with 
your warm wishes.

Working with you and so many other community members is what made this job so 
special for me over the years.

I will miss our collaborations and hope we’ll get a chance to work together 
again down the line.

And yes, I hope to be able to contribute new content as a volunteer, now that I 
will have more time for this type of work.

In the meantime, I invite you to continue to work with others to grow ‘a 
culture of kindness’ (1) in all that you do, so that our movement can reach its 
full potential — the real opportunity ahead is a lot more about nurturing a 
welcoming and productive culture than it is about building technology, and we 
sometimes forget that. 

Thanks again for reaching out to me, and for being such great partners — I look 
forward to more great collaborations with many of you down the line. :)

Regards as ever,


(1) A Culture of Kindness

P.S.: Sorry about my previous email, which was intended to be sent privately.
