Manny Moving to San Francisco, To Work For Ning

By now, some of you have heard the news.

I will be leaving Full Sail soon. Starting Jan. 15 I will be starting at a new position in the heart of Silicon Valley, surrounded by some true legends of the Web industry, helping others create and develop social networks at Ning is the platform that powers, in case you are unfamiliar with it.

This will make Jan. 4 my last day at Full Sail.

At the same time that I am happy for this new opportunity (and this you can believe to come from the bottom of my heart), part of my heart is sad to leave behind such a great team of people.

I have been in Full Sail since July 2003. This is the longest time I have been in any job in my life (thanks in no small part to the Internet bubble that burst a couple of times in my face!)

I have grown not only in years while at Full Sail: I’ve grown as a manager, I’ve grown my understanding of web products, and most important of all, I’ve grown in friends.

Now, I look forward to working in Ning, helping others accomplish what we have done in and continuing to develop as a professional and a human being.

Today and the days up to Dec. 5, we are in the Bay Area, looking the place (or at least an area where that place will be located) that we will start calling home soon. Any tips are welcome! :)

I wish you and your family all the best in this move. I think Ning will be a better place for having you work there.
