Just to let you know, I have today submitted my resignation to IBM. We need to set a final date, as there is one item I must complete before I leave, but my last day should be 24 March 2000.
My plans are to consult with the various companies now organizing around EROS to help them get started, and then (assuming an appropriate offer comes through) to move to academia.
Among other things, I look forward to getting the whole EROS effort unstuck. In particular, I look forward to working with those of you who have been so patient to this point.
