In light of yesterday's announcement about my decision to join Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services as Chief Marketing Officer, one obvious question is what will it mean to the Tim Callan on Marketing and Technology blog?
It will not mean that I discontinue writing this blog. As I've explained in an earlier post, I created, authored, and ran a very active and widely read security blog when I was at VeriSign. During those five years and 439 posts, I often thought about interesting marketing, sales, or technology topics that were outside the very specific scope of that blog. When I eventually decided to kick this blog into production, it was so that I had a place to discuss those topics.
I don't see how my new job will cause me to have fewer of those ideas. If anything, working in a vibrant and interesting technology space tends to give me more of them. I don't share confidential information on this blog, and I'll continue not to do so when I'm working at Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services.
The only potential obstacle is that I might get super busy and have trouble finding time to write. But I was super busy at VeriSign, and I still managed to put up eighty posts a year, so I figure I can handle that as well.
