10 years ago today I left IBM

By Noah | April 7, 2020

Ten years ago on April 7, 2010 I left IBM, a company where I had worked on and off since 1974. The post I made 5 years ago on this anniversary pretty well sums up how I got to that point and what I set off to do in the time afterwards. There’s not much to add: I’m still loving being at Tufts, still thrilled to have spent all these years as the bass player for Rock City Band, and still enjoying having a little more freedom and free time, particularly in the summer months when school is not in session. Still, it’s hard to believe it’s been ten years, and I’m very grateful that it’s gone so well.

As I write this, all of us are a few weeks into dealing with the tragedy of COVID-19. So far I and my immediate family are well, and hoping that better times will come again soon.
