Subject Re: Flume Graduation (was Re: June reports in two weeks)
Date Fri, 25 May 2012 22:45:48 GMT
Hi folks,

Just to throw my hat into the ring on this subject: I recognize that I have
been inactive from a contribution standpoint since Flume's introduction
into the ASF incubator, but still follow Flume on the mailing lists and in
other community meetups. I've done a bunch of work with Flume in the past,
and I remain very interested in where Flume is going. Flume's direction is
something important to me; but I have seldom weighed in, as I often felt
that others were resolving things in a manner that did not require my input.

Unfortunately, my duties with my own startup have prevented me from taking
a more direct role in the building of Flume for quite some time. I believe
that there are ways in which it makes sense for WibiData to directly
integrate with Flume in the future -- but time and resources are scarce at
a startup, so this has not been something I've yet demonstrated externally
in front of the incubator community.

I look forward to a time in the future when my duties are rearranged once
again, and I can devote more of my time back to hacking than I do now :)
(The one constant at a startup, after all, is change.)

PS -- My affiliation should be updated to "WibiData"; we changed the
company name from Odiago to WibiData recently.
