Tick. The clock just ticked past 5:00PM PT September 21st, 2011, marking exactly one year since I walked out the doors of Microsoft as a former employee.

The reason I care, of course, is that means both my non-compete clause and my non-solicitation clause have expired. I am now free to go work on whatever I want, (and I’m also free to talk to my former co-workers about working for Google – y’know, if you want ;).

So yes, you can expect that I will now be finding my way back to working on the core Open Web Platform, since that is where my passion lies. And you can also expect I will be less…restrained… about discussing the web platform in the future. Off to celebrate…

  4. Ugh, non-compete clauses are terrible things for normal folk. I can understand them if you’re a CEO, but jeez.
