Over the past 9 months I’ve been working on iTunes 9. Which shipped 9/9/9. Weird.
As of this week, however, I’m now working in the iPhone group, back in my old stomping ground of building 2. It’s so weird to be back there. It’s been reconfigured a bit since I was there last, but otherwise, it’s the same old place I remember. I was even visiting some old co-workers of mine and noted that my original office was right across the hall. That was (gulp) just over 13 years ago! I think the building was pretty new at the time too (completed in 1993 or so?).
So yeah, I’m in the same building (different floor), and seeing a lot of the old people I used to know. But there are way more new faces than OGs. It all the same, yet different.
But the most important thing in all of this is this: now that I’ve just about settled in I’m starting to have some serious fun. I haven’t looked forward to doing my work this much since… probably since the last time I worked there. Yes, I’ve done interesting stuff and had fun times in between, but this is a whole different level.
I’m home again! 🙂
