Time over time I continue to talk and share the joys of using OpenOffice as an alternative to Office. Just today I was informed by a teacher in the Pinconning Area Schools that they have started to use OpenOffice as their tool for teaching. This teacher was just so thankful and raving about the joys of having OpenOffice in the classroom and able to have the students using it at home. The tool is open, free and great to use. I have been an OOo user for a long time now, I admit there have been bugs and it continues to get better with each release.
An amazing story and I love telling the use of open source software and more.
As many have heard or will be hearing soon, I will be leaving Sun Microsystems at the end of November of this year after eight and a half years. I have accepted the position of Director of Technology at Messiah and will be leading up, forming, growing, developing…. all aspects of the use of technology to help spread the Gospel message locally as well as globally. I will continue to oversee and lead the journeys team, they are my local church bartenders and we rock it out.
I have had a blast and learned so much in my time at Sun and will miss the work and most definitely the people, they have truly made the job worth coming to each day.
Jesus has an awesome adventure ahead for myself, my family and for His kingdom and I am excited to be called to be a part of it all.
For what it’s worth
