Moving to Kiva www.kiva.org!
Well, finally the big announcement. I will be changing jobs to go work for the non-profit microfinancing organization Kiva at http://www.kiva.org starting Feb. 15th. I'm really excited about all the possibilities at Kiva and you will see this reflected in some blog posts and such on it going forward. I will continue my efforts for promoting Drupal at California universities, but will try to find someone within the system to assume leadership after I am no longer a part. If that proves impossible, I may have to refocus the effort towards promoting Drupal in California universities and non-profits. Either way, a win for Drupal =)
Oh, and my Kiva position will be All Drupal - All the Time! I
Here was my last message to my co-workers:
Some people have asked, so I thought it best that I should share that I will be leaving San Francisco State University to go work for Kiva. Kiva is a non-profit philanthropic microfinancing organization that uses Drupal in many of their applications. It has been my dream to work for Kiva for many years and though I love working at SF State, I must go fulfill this dream. My last day at SF State will be Feb. 10th, though I may remain in some limited capacity to help answer questions and finish transitions.
Though it has been a lot of work, I have vastly enjoyed working with nearly everyone in DoIT and at SF State, especially those in the Drupal community we have established here. I believe these efforts will continue to move forward now like a snowball that has gained enough momentum to roll down the mountain on its own. Thank you to everyone who worked with me and supported my work.
Forward the foundation ;)
