A new chapter begins

      5 Comments on A new chapter begins

13 years is a long time. When I started working at BestBuy.com, the Internet was a lot smaller than it is today. Youtube and Facebook didn’t exist, nobody had heard of Google, and while the iPod owned the portable music player market, it had a monochromatic screen and moving parts.

It’s long enough for me to have been part of some very cool things – Best Buy Entertainment, the Digiterra Project, ARIES, Remix, EPIC, and the replatforming of BestBuy.com on open-source and the cloud. I’ve had the chance to work with some truly awesome people, and I’ve learned a lot.

And it’s time to move on. I’m resigning at Best Buy, and joining Digital River to lead API development. I’ll be working with some really excellent people – some of whom I’ve worked with before, and some who are new to me – and I’m excited about the challenge in front of me.

I’m sad to be leaving Best Buy behind. It’s been a great place for me, full of people I’m proud to have worked with and learned from. I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to see the work that I helped start come to fruition, but I have every confidence that it will be awesome.

    Kevin,
    I hope the move to a new job goes well for you. I know you will be missing the people and things that were part of your life, but you will be having new experiences and meeting new people.
