I've had the pleasure of working with David since 2001 when I was hired to be the PHP tech lead for ActiveState.  David quickly turned me into a Python developer working on Komodo!  I've learned a ton from David, not including Python, and the thought of not working with him is a bit strange.  At the same time, it's always exciting when a friend gets an awesome opportunity like this; getting to start a fresh new organization that (hint to David) will finally fix email for me!  There you have it, it's all about me.

I wish you the best David, if you ever need an opinion, you know where to go :)
