sendoff

Last Friday we sent Dave packing for Washington.

I guess that employers generally do a really poor job of acknowledging people for what they add (and I wish I were better than most, but I know in my gut that I’m not), and so I want to take just a minute now to thank David for a great summer.

It’s not that often that you work with people whose taste you respect, and I think that taste in general is an under-appreciated quality among programmers that distinguishes entire echelons of programmers from one another. This summer I’ve had the good fortune to work closely with someone who has a good sense of programming taste.

Thanks Dave.
