Farewell Rackspace

To my most affectionate Rackers,

April 1st is my last day at Rackspace.  It has been quite a journey this past 8 years growing and sharing experiences with you all.  We’ve laughed together and danced together and sweat through rough times together.  We’ve labored through long days and toiled through late nights and built digital monuments together.  And I wouldn’t trade any second of it for the world.

I am moving to China in May to start a company with a friend, and to teach English at the same time.  For the next few years I plan to travel all over the world living in various cities to experience the culture and learn the language.  Maybe one day I can learn to speak all the major languages of the world and be some sort of ambassador for mankind. Ambitious I know, but a guy can dream ๐Ÿ™‚  Wish me luck!

I’m not going to be able to see each and everyone of you to say our goodbyes.  Please hug each other on my behalf and pass the hug on.  Maybe someday in some distant land I’ll get a random hug from a stranger and he or she’ll turn to me and say “That hug was from so-and-so, from this date and time, and has found its way to you.”  That would be so cool!

Thank you for everything!  You all will always hold a special place in my heart.  Take care of yourselves and each other. May our lives intersect again one day.

Much Love,

p.s.  You can follow my adventures by subscribing to this blog or friending me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/huey.ly).

    I’ve enjoyed our adventure together over the past eight years. My little girl is halfway through her second online course in Chinese. And she got a 100 on her test this past weekend! You will hear from us when the Winters family visits China.

    Enjoy your next chapter. I look forward to following the storyline from afar.
