Tech Transition

Technical Transitions.

Literally, a transition in the tech space is me rn. Changes. Why Tu Pac’s changes song pops in my head, I couldn’t tell you. Semantics. Cue all these songs about change.

Those photos are from a Mackelmore concert I attended the other day because he sings a song about change and the good ole’ days. Far fetched, but connection nonetheless.

So yeah, change is happening for me. I got a new job!

I’ve been working in the virtual/augmented reality world for the past year and a half. What a ride it’s been.

Virtual reality is the first step in a grand adventure into the landscape of the imagination.
-Frank Biocca

Virtual reality takes you somewhere, augmented reality brings something to you (usually through your phone).

I’ll miss the VR/AR world as I maneuver over to the Google Cloud team.

Changes are nerve inducing yet thrilling at the same time.

Thrilled to make the upward move!

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.
-Bob Dylan
What I’ve learned? A whole heck of a lot:
  • Believe in the journey
  • What’s meant to be has a way of happening
  • If the door doesn’t open, there’s a better door down the hall
  • Ask questions
  • Utilize nervous energy effectively
Feel free to reach out if you want to learn more.
I find chatting with others to be extremely useful in order to see multiple lenses and options for my own journey.
Change is the end result of all true learning.
-Leo Buscaglia
Like I told you, what I said
Steal your face right off your head
Yes, the times are a’changin’ my friend.
What’s next in your career or task world? 🙂
