Where’s Michael Now?

zipdx_logoThere have been quite a number of changes going on hereabouts, largely behind the scenes. Some have been mentioned in passing on recent VUC calls. I thought it was about time to break the news more generally.

On March 31st I left Pixel Power. After fourteen years on their staff, it was a very difficult decision to make. I had been in the broadcast business for over twenty years, and I still very much liked the work. Nonetheless, it was time for something new. I needed a change and a new challenge.

Early in April I began working with ZipDX. Friend and long-time VUC sponsor David Frankel has project that sounded interesting (pardon the HDVoice pun,) and gives me an opportunity to participate in the IP communications space in a more direct fashion.

Thus there have been a lot of changes going on over the past couple of months. A lot of broadcast-related hardware has left my office, destined for my former employers office in the west. Also, some interesting new hardware has arrived, which I will some day get around to describing here.

In a tweet some weeks ago I expressed the notion that “a new normal” was fast approaching. In recent weeks I’ve been trying to define that new normal. As I grow more accustomed to my new scope of activities I hope to re-engage on many different levels.

I’ve recently been reminded of the opening to the old Six Million Dollar Man TV Show, “We can rebuild him, we have the technology. We can make him better. Faster. Stronger…” and in my case, maybe just a bit bloggier, too.
