Among other things Steve said at his retirement celebration, today, was this. â€œI hope I have as much fun in retirement as Iâ€™ve had working at UVM.â€
My tears didnâ€™t come until I left the party.
Friend to me and many, many souls here at UVM; visionary, curmudgeon, provocateur, playful adopter and vocal advocate of disruptive innovations. I will miss your voice, calling to us from a divergent path, pointing toward a new, interesting destination.
Now that youâ€™ve migrated much of your virtual essence into the cloud, I expect frequent pings (tweets, facebook updates, Asian video chatsâ€¦) telling me what you really think. And keep the cool music and design posts flowing.
Letâ€™s go out to lunch before summer is over. Iâ€™ll buy you a martini. 🙂
