I've been putting off writing this post for a lot longer than I should have because writing things down often makes them seem more real and final. This is a silly notion, with very little basis in fact, but silly notions are not uncommon to me. Yet here I am writing this down, or rather writing a long and boring introduction to delay the inevitable even further, so bullet bitten here I go.

The 9th of December will be my last day at Simulacra.

A couple of years ago that is a phrase I thought I would never be writing, a year ago it was something that I hoped would not have to come. Finally 6 months ago I realised that my time had come. At the 5 year mark and I had one of the silliest notions I have possibly ever had. I realised that where I was in my life, then and there, was the reality of the answer to the most popular question to ask someone in an interview, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?".

Silly notion to be sure, but one that stuck with me, that I couldn't shake. Amongst the many reasons for my leaving the top most is that I needed a change, a new challenge, something quite different.

Just signed up for the new Google Analytics...

Interestingly, it took me a little while to find United Kingdom in the country select list, it was up in the G's so I guess they are ordering by ISO Country Code not the display name. Won't get the first reports for 12 hours so I'll let you know how good it is then. In the mean time sign up your site here.
