Life in Paris, my universe and potentially everything

The first Two Months of the Rest of My Life

Times are a changin’ or as the Wachowski brothers put it: “everything that has a beginning has an end” – and that is not only true for the Matrix trilogy. After about 2900 days my time working for Lycos-Europe/Pangora is officially over and it has already been two months since my last day at the office. It has been a very interesting and moving experience that I would not want to have missed. I learned a lot and met many interesting people, quite a few of which I am happy to count among my friends now, but after almost eight years in my first job, it finally is time for something new. I’ll let you know as soon as there are news on that.

Beginning and end, as seen by Matrix Revolutions

So it is “Goodbye Pangora” and of course all the best for the future to all the colleagues in Karlsruhe, London, Milano, Paris and Yerevan, it has been a pleasure meeting and working with you all.

As for the last few weeks: I decided to take a sabbatical until the end of the year and so far I’m having a ball! I’ve been out and about to go see a few places you usually don’t have the time to go and see, including California, Tokyo and Australia. So many incredible places to see, so little time. Picture proof to follow shortly…

    Hi Jan,

    ich habe erst jetzt Deinen Blog entdeckt. Schade, dass Deine Erfahrung bei Pangora nun am Ende ist. Aber wieso ist es vorbei? Nicht, dass es früher oder später nicht hätte passieren müssen – siehe die Pressemitteilungen der letzten Woche über Lycos.
    Was machst Du jetzt? In welchem Land der Welt wirst Du Dich niederlassen?

    Hi Mauro – long time! Und ja, war Zeit für eine Veränderung, und das mit Lycos ist wirklich krass, war aber irgendwie auch abzusehen, dass das nicht ewig so weitergehen kann. Im Moment mache ich erstmal Urlaub und ab Januar geht’s dann mit dem Ernst des Lebens weiter, die Details sind gerade in Diskussion, ich sage Bescheid, wenn da sicher ist wo/wo/was/wann es weitergeht (bleibt aber wohl zumindest vorerst mal Frankreich)…
