Stephen Abrams leaves SirsiDynix

Sad to see SirsiDynix’s  announcement that Stephen Abrams is leaving them. This is backed up by Stephen’s own blog posting where he learn that he’s going to Gale in January. Stephen has had a rocky road recently due to a rather ill-advised paper about open-source, and he does have a tendency to blur the boundaries between his roles as technology evangelist and company VP. Nevertheless I enjoyed talking with him when I was involved in things SD, and his presentations about Web 2, Library 2, and so on are both entertaining and thought-provoking. In his new role I hope we’ve not seen the last of him!
