Day 81

My sabbatical leave is almost finished, with three days left and a deep dive back into the world of Automattic next Monday, when I’ll have the immense pleasure to meet my 600 colleagues face to face, many for the first time, in Canada.

That’s a pretty intense way to go back after such a long time, but I was given the opportunity of easing smoothly back into “professional” mode by attending the Mind the Product workshops and conference today and tomorrow!

So, here I am, back in London, looking forward to learning as much as possible, while subtly shifting my brain structure in preparation for next week.

  1. Looking forward to welcome you back next week, Paolo!
    Hope you’ve had a wonderful sabbatical 🙂

  2. You’re nuts for making the GM your first day back. I don’t think I could do that. I would need another sabbatical after the GM. It’ll be good to have you back though.
