Well, it's drifting toward less & less of a secret, especially as I filled in my team at standup today:

I'm leaving Mozilla at the end of next week after 13 years and 9 months.

Then a few weeks of attempting not to think too hard about computers before the next thing.

I don't know why, but I feel kind of cagey tooting or tweeting much about this. But also I feel like I should write a mclargehuge blog post about how & where I spent like 1/2 my professional career

Like, I've been a lifer & a booster of most things Mozilla for an existentially significant span. And very soon... I'll be out. Not a ragequit as such, more a need for change.

Which is funny because a past version of me was befuddled whenever someone said they were leaving because they needed a change, but now I get it.

@lmorchard that’s a long time in this tech world! Speaking as a ex-lifer at another place, it sure feels weird! But change is really good when you’re ready for it.

@lmorchard dude, what a big transition!

I wish you all the best in your new endeavors.


I do wish we got to work together on things when we were both at Mozilla, but I will always your support for doing the right thing, and thinking about the long term.

To new things!

@emma Yeah, I feel like we kept passing by at All Hands but never quite worked together :)
