The State of Mark: Dreamwidth

[staff profile] mark
Something I've been meaning to write about, but there's never really a good time, so hey.

One of the best things about building a really awesome foundation on something is that, eventually, you can take a step back and let things continue to go and grow and feel entirely confident that things aren't going to go off the rails without you. Over the past six months I've been reducing my role on Dreamwidth and am recently at the point where I'm really not doing a lot on the site day to day.

I'm still helping out when really needed and I will continue to make myself available for middle-of-the-night site breakages and other problems that need immediate redress. However, I am not taking an active role in the management or development of the project on a day-to-day basis. For any of that, you should talk to [staff profile] denise and/or [personal profile] fu. They're awesome and I have complete confidence in the future of Dreamwidth with them at the helm.

I think that's the salient part.

1) Thank you for everything you have done for us, and the crisis management you'll continue to do going forward. (I happily remember being impressed by reading that you interrupted a car journey for urgent DW repair work!)
2) Best of luck with whatever fills most of your time from now on.
3) As your life is not our business and you don't owe us an explanation, should we assume that if you wanted us to know why you're doing this then you'd have told us?
