Not much blogging has been going on here for a lot of reasons; one of which explains why I’m leaving Reno soon. Some of you may have noticed my growing interest in government transparency, egovernment, online organizing, and online civic participation as I participated in projects like
I have been personally inspired by the potential technology presents in terms of creating an empowered citizenry and feel incredibly lucky to have found a job which will enable me to work on civic engagement full time. I am moving to Alexandria, Virginia to become the Community Manager for ACTion Alexandria (no website…yet!), a technology-enabled initiative for citizen engagement.
I will begin work in Alexandria on July 15th. Any while I’m excited to begin working for ACTion Alexandria, I am definitely leaving Reno with some regret. Reno has been my home for 10 years and is a community I’ve obviously become very engaged with myself. In fact, much of what I’ve learned about civic engagement began right here on this blog. Whether we agreed or not, you helped give me a push toward the road I’m now on. So, really, I have you to thank for this incredible new opportunity.
So what happens to this blog? I’m not sure. I’ve written 2,440 blog posts, many of which are about life in Reno. I guess I’ll just leave it up for posterity, and who knows, maybe I’ll post updates once in a while. It’s hard to tell at this point.
So, I guess this is goodbye…..for now
I leave you with these parting words from
Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
It’s later than you think
