Jayashree had gotten this job dumped on her early this year, when Bill decided enough was enough and just dropped everything. She's actually younger than I am and I've tried to make it easy to manage someone older, more experienced, and with solid opinions about things. And it seems that I've done well in that regard. She's cool in that she's explicitly looking for work for me that'll fit the things that I really want to do and she's willing to change that as I change.
I love writing for a living, really. It's been a cool challenge and it amuses me when my engineering pals say that they wouldn't step into my shoes for the world, as they would have so much trouble communicating with so many people. Sometimes it gets frustrating, but when I can describe things that never were well enough for a bunch of people to make it BE, that's pretty darned cool. Best of all is that I seems to speak both software and hardware as well as enough testing to be comprehensible to our testing folks, and I speak enough marketing to get results that are actually doable and which satisfy customer needs. It's useful and fun to be fluent in multiple languages and get the feedback that I speak them better than some had hoped.
So I can't complain about not getting specific feedback anymore. Thank you, diony.
