Director Losing Barefoot Product Manager

August 28th, 2006

Tom Higgins posted in his blog that he’ll be leaving his position at Adobe next week. In the post Tom said Adobe tried to keep him with the Director/Shockwave team, but he is ready to head in a new direction.

Several new members of the Director/Shockwave team were introduced. I hope they are ready to hear all the varied opinions from us crazy developers, and that they can be as energetic and communicative as Tom has been over the past years.

Tom, thanks for putting years of energy in to Director! May your next chapter be fun, exciting, and successful.

If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.

    Thanks Hanford Raman, this was definitely a tough choice to make but it’s one that I feel is the best for me in the long run. After 8 years of working on Director & Shockwave I’m ready for something different so I’m leaving the nest to see what that might be. First I’ll be enjoying some time off through the end of the year, then I’ll try to land that next gig and get back to work…

    Thanks to everyone out there, it’s been a great ride!

    Tom, you are so busy you lost track of which site you were on so I changed my name for you πŸ™‚

    I’ve now been doing the same job for 8 years and am starting to get a bit of wanderlust myself. Let me know how it goes and I might try it myself.

    LOL on the “Hanford” versus “Raman” bit, sorry Raman… Too many blogs, too many emails… Sorry!
